Fresh from its world premiere and double win at the Galway Film Fleadh, here's a chance to watch a clip from the Irish black comedy Redemption of a Rogue.
The feature debut of writer-director Philip Doherty, Redemption of a Rogue is set in Cavan and stars Aaron Monaghan (Maze, Assassin's Creed) as Jimmy, a man who "embarks on a sacrificial and outlandish journey to rid himself of his guilt and shame from the past, ultimately redeeming himself through love".
The cast also includes Aisling O'Mara, Kieran Roche, Kevin McGahern, Shane Connaughton and Pat McCabe.
Redemption of a Rogue won Best Irish Film and Best Irish First Feature at the Galway Film Fleadh at the weekend. It is due for release in cinemas later in the year.
