Made for €4,500 and shot in a week, Kerry drama Pilgrim Hill gives us a writer-director, Gerard Barrett, and star, Joe Mullins, to treasure.

It tells the story of Jimmy Walsh, a bachelor farmer whose long march to old age is halted by tumultuous events over the course of one week.

Shot documentary-style, it is a simple story, beautifully told.

The damp will be in your bones from the very start, with the tears in your eyes coming not long after.

Here, Barrett tells Harry Guerin about his inspiration for the film, and what he hopes people will take from it.
