Redemption of a Rogue at Clones Film Festival

Friday 10pm The Courthouse

Dishevelled Jimmy Cullen returns to Co Cavan after seven years of exile to make peace with his dying father and seek redemption for past sins before he too bids this world farewell. 

Moments after his arrival, his father breathes his last and a steady rain begins to pour. A condition in his will reveals that he must not be buried on a wet day or Jimmy and his brother will be disinherited. With no sign of the rain abating, Jimmy embarks on an existential journey to make amends and ultimately redeems himself through love.

This musical and extremely black comedy, the feature film debut by Philip Doherty, a former winner of the 48-hour Short Film Challenge judges’ and audience award at Clones Film Festival with Diamond Boutique, stars many Cavan actors and musicians that would have been no strangers to Clones Film Festival over the years as well as long-standing, valued supporter of CFF, Clones writer Pat McCabe (The Butcher Boy, Breakfast on Pluto) in a pivotal role.

Featuring an eclectic and excellent soundtrack by Robbie Perry, who will be performing a new ambient soundtrack to Man of Aran with the APO-33 collective at this year’s Clones Film Festival, Redemption of a Rogue won Best Irish Feature at the Galway Film Fleadh 2020.

And watch the wonderful Annie-June Callaghan perform in the film on the big screen and then live in our Festival Club at Adamson’s Bar afterwards!! Please see our Festival Club page for details.
