In this Film Ireland podcast Gemma Creagh talks to Robert Manson, writer and director of Holy Island.
Holy Island is a story about two lost souls, Rosa and David, trapped in purgatory in the form of a run-down port town.
They meet awaiting a boat to leave the island, both longing to return home. Together they are forced to traverse an abnormal maze, piecing together their past lives through shared conversations and memories. In the end, only one of them can be saved. The other must fall.
Holy Island is in cinemas from 14th October 2022.

…a powerful, engaging film … At once familiar and eerie. It seems reminiscent of so much Irish cinema that has come before it but is undoubtedly and determinedly unlike anything seen before
