IT IS IN US ALL, the directorial debut from Irish filmmaker Antonia Campbell-Hughes will open in Irish cinemas today.
The feature drama which was filmed on location in Donegal with support from Donegal Film Office stars Cosmo Jarvis (Persuasion, Calm With Horses), Claes Bang (The Northman) & Rhys Mannion.
When Hamish arrives on the soil of his mother’s birth, she is felt instantly.
As he travels further into the wild Irish country, a shocking car accident rips him apart, shattering his clenched control.
A beast broken, he finds himself lost in the world of his long deceased mother.
But when he starts to receive visits from a teenager who was also involved in the crash, Hamish begins to experience the electricity of living.
The film had its world premiere at the prestigious SXSW festival in the US this year where it won a Special Jury Prize for Extraordinary Cinematic Vision.
Antonia was also selected earlier this summer as one of Europe Film Promotion’s Europe! Voices of Women In Film programme at the Sydney Film Festival which highlighted 10 European women filmmakers to watch.
IT IS IN US ALL was produced by Emma Foley and Tamryn Reinecke for Pale Rebel Productions (Redemption of a Rogue) and Conor Barry for Savage Productions (The Cellar, Pilgrimage).
The film was funded through Screen Ireland’s inaugural edition of its POV scheme which champions distinct Irish female voices with a passion to tell stories on the big screen.
