The Irish Cultural Centre is proud to present the feature film:

Black 47

Followed by a Q&A with Director Lance Daly 

It’s  1847  and  Ireland  is  in  the  grip  of  the  Great  Famine  that  has  ravaged  the  country  for  two  long  years.  Feeney,  a  hardened  Irish  Ranger  who  has  been  fighting  for  the  British  Army  abroad,  abandons  his  post  to  return  home  and  re-unite  with  his  estranged  family.  He’s  seen  more  than  his  share  of  horrors  but  nothing  prepares  him  for  the  famine’s  hopeless  destruction  of  his  homeland.  He  discovers  his  mother  starved  to  death  and  his  brother  hanged  by  the  brutal  hand  of  the  English.  With  little  else  to  live  for,  he  sets  on  a  destructive  path  to  avenge  his  family,  systematically  working  his  way  up  the  political  and  social  hierarchy  of  19th  Century  Ireland.  Hannah,  an  ageing  British  soldier  and  famed  tracker  of  deserters,  is  sent  to  stop  Feeney  before  he  can  further  stoke  the  fires  of  revolution.  But  Hannah  and  Feeney  are  old  army  comrades  with  a  mutual  respect  forged  by  their  times  fighting  together.  Personal  bonds  and  shifting  allegiances  cause  both  men  to  question  their  motives,  as  they  are  tested  to  the  limit  by  the  hellish  landscape  of  “the  Great  Hunger”.
