King of the Travellers Opens THIS WEEKEND!

I’m delighted that the film I edited, King of the Travellers opens this Friday nationwide. I urge everyone to make the effort to go see the film this weekend and support Irish film. You’ve seen the posters around town, now go see the film!

Grounded in the traditions of the Irish Traveller community, King of the Travellers follows John Paul Moorehouse on his destructive quest to uncover the truth about his father’s killer. John Paul’s desire for revenge is swayed as he falls for Winnie Power, the daughter of the man he suspects killed his father. To ensure authenticity in the film, Travellers were cast to play the Traveller roles, many of whom had never acted before. With a nod to the Sergio Leone and John Ford Westerns of the last century, King of the Travellers is an explosive contemporary take on Traveller life.

There will be a special preview on Thursday April 18 in the IFI Dublin, director Mark O’Connor and cast members John Connors, Michael Collins and Peter Coonan (Love/Hate) will take part in a Q&A session with broadcaster Vincent Browne.
