An Bronntanas: Preview of Irish Film at the Galway Film Fleadh



The 26th Galway Film Fleadh (8 – 13 July, 2014)

An Bronntanas 

Sun 13th July

Town Hall Theatre


An Bronntanas (The Gift)  is a contemporary thriller set against the background of a local independent lifeboat crew working off the coast of Conamara, in the West of Ireland.


The rescue crew receives a distress call on a stormy night to discover a fishing boat, its only passenger a dead woman and its cargo is over a million Euros worth of drugs. The crew is challenged with a moral dilemma — bring the woman on shore and hand the drugs to the authorities or, leave the body, sell the drugs and save their struggling village. It’s a decision that will change their lives forever.


An Bronntanas is a relevant tale told with black humor, making a wry, incisive comment on the human condition, but it’s also a cautionary tale about the evil that good men can do.


Director Tom Collins and cast will attend the screening.
