In this Film Ireland podcast Gemma Creagh talks to Sasha King about her powerful film Vicky, which tells the inspirational story of Vicky Phelan’s personal journey and heroic work to uncover the Irish CervicalCheck scandal.
In 2018 on the steps of the High Court in Dublin, Vicky Phelan gave a now infamous address where she exposed the CervicalCheck scandal. A subsequent investigation revealed over 220 women were affected, while 17 women had already died.
Vicky is a profound and intimate journey into the Kilkenny native’s fight to expose the truth. It also delves into Vicky’s personal fight to extend her life.
Vicky is in Irish cinemas from 7th October 2022.
To merely class this as a documentary would be myopic. This is a wake-up call, not just for the healthcare industry but for society as a whole.
