IFTA Viewing Season - Mammal

  • Date:     Monday 22nd March
  • Venue:  Odeon Piont Village
  • Time:    6.30pm

Irish Film & Television Academy are delighted to host a special IFTA Viewing season screening of Mammal, on Tuesday 22nd March at 6.30pm at the Odeon Point Village.

Mammal is directed by Rebecca Daly (The Other Side of Sleep), from a script by Daly and Glenn Montgomery. It tells the story of a woman (Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner Rachel Griffiths) who has lost her son and develops an unorthodox relationship with a homeless youth (Barry Keoghan - Love/Hate, '71). Their tentative trust is threatened by his involvement with a violent gang and the escalation of her ex-husband’s (Michael McElhatton - Game of Thrones) grieving rage.

The film, which premiered to high critical acclaim at Sundance, also stars Johnny Ward (‘Love/Hate) and Nika McGuigan (Philomena) and shot in Ireland and Luxembourg.

Mammal was produced by Macdara Kelleher and Conor Barry for Fastnet Films (Strangerland, Kisses, What If) and was funded by the Irish Film Board (IFB), Luxembourg Film Fund, BAI, TV3 and the Netherlands Film Fund.

Mammal will be released by Wildcard Distribution in cinemas nationwide from Friday 1st April
