Wildfire| Cathy Brady | 2020 | 84 mins | 15 | UK & Ireland
This month our film selection marks International Women’s Day with a screening of F-rated* film, Wildfire. Directed by Cathy Brady, this debut feature film explores the complexities of trauma and sisterly relationships set on the Irish border.
About the Film
Inseparable sisters raised in a small town on the Irish border, Lauren and Kelly’s lives were shattered with the mysterious death of their mother. Left to pick up the pieces after her sister abruptly disappeared, Lauren is suddenly confronted with the family’s dark and traumatic past when Kelly returns home after being reported missing for a whole year. With the intense sisterhood reignited, Kelly’s desire to unearth their history is not welcomed by all in the small town, as rumours and malice spread like wildfire, threatening to push them over the edge.
* The film is triple F rated in that it is written and directed by women and features significant women on screen; and in this case all three by writer/director Cathy Brady.
