We are delighted that ‘Rocky Ros Muc‘ has won ‘Global Vision Documentary’ at the Irish Film Festival 2017 in Boston.
Air-Edel’s Andrew Simon McAllister composed the original score for the production which was directed and executive produced by Michael Fanning.
“From humble beginnings, to challenging for a world title crown. From the quiet Gaeltacht village of Ros Muc in Co Galway, to the criminal underworld of James ‘Whitey’ Bulger and the mean streets of Boston. Rocky Ros Muc examines spirit inside the ring and troubles outside; the reality of emigration and its impact on identity.
Rocky Ros Muc is Sean Mannion’s story. His life and boxing career. The ups and downs of both.
A story of survival. Of determination, honour and strength. A story about identity and community. Not just for Sean Mannion, but for the thousands of emigrants like him.”
The world premiere will take place on Saturday, March 25, 2017 6:00pm, Somerville Theatre 1.
