In his feature debut, Seán Breathnach adapts Donal Ryan’s novel The Thing About December and translates it from English and the novel’s Midlands setting to Irish and the rugged Conamara landscape. Foscadh (Shelter)t ells the story of naïve recluse John Cunliffe who is suddenly propelled into manhood at the ripe old age of 28. When his over-protective parents pass away, friendless John inherits mountain land that is in the way of a lucrative wind-farm development, and he is forced to navigate the choppy waters of romance, trust and vengeance for the first time…
Director and Screenwriter Seán Breathnach discusses the adaptation process with publisher (Drumlin Publications) and theatre director Prin Duignan.
