“It’s 1847 and Ireland is in the grip of the Great Famine, which has ravaged the country for two long years. Feeney, a hardened Irish Ranger, who has been fighting for the British Army abroad, abandons his post to return home and re-unite with his estranged family. He’s seen more than his share of horrors, but nothing prepares him for the famine’s hopeless destruction of his homeland.”
Black 47, the Irish-made famine revenge film comes to Galway screens this weekend!
Set in Connemara, and shot around the Maumturk Mountains, Black ’47 just goes to show how vibrant a cinematic region Galway is, and with an incredible Galwegian, Irish, and International cast including Hugo Weaving, Moe Dunford, Stephen Rea, and Diarmuid De Faoite, you have to be sure not to miss it!
