In this Film Ireland podcast, Gemma Creagh talks to Seán Breathnach, Writer/Director of Foscadh.

Set in the stunning wild mountains of North Conamara,  Foscadh (meaning Shelter) is a delayed coming-of-age tale that will have you rooting for its hapless hero as he takes his first tentative steps into adulthood. 

Written and directed by Seán Breathnach,  Foscadh  is based on characters created by award-winning novelist Donal Ryan in his book The Thing About December.  It tells the story of naïve recluse John Cunliffe who is suddenly propelled into manhood at the ripe old age of 28.  When his over-protective parents pass away, friendless John inherits mountain land that sits in the way of a lucrative wind-farm development where he is forced to navigate the choppy waters of trust, vengeance and romance for the first time. 

Foscadh is in cinemas from 11th March 2022.
