Linda Bhreathnach's new film to premiere at the Fleadh

Native, a film about 'emigration and homecoming' stars Patrick Bergin

LINDA BHREATHNACH, who impressed at last year's Galway Film Fleadh with Adulting, returns with her new film Native, starring Patrick Bergin, which will be screened at the 2017 fleadh.

Native is Bhreathnach's adaptation of the short story H91 Arís by Bridget Bhreathnach, published in irisComhar in 2016. It is directed by Linda and co-produced with Marina Yarnell Donahue, California.

“The story is about emigration and homecoming,” says Linda. “I wanted to create a film that could be understood by anyone regardless of background or language. It deals with the sadness and loss inherent to life, but also the potential to transcend suffering and to find beauty. Patrick Bergin’s character leaves Ireland as an economic migrant to return many years later to find an abandoned home."
