Production shot for Hinterland“I am the giant of the modern era. The age of Silvester will take up many a chapter in the history of Ireland.”

Johnny Silvester, father of the nation, won the hearts and votes of Ireland. But that was in his heyday. Now, as this bright hinterland recedes, he finds himself revisited by a dubious past. Can tragedy redeem him in the absence of remorse? And where is that Special Branch man when Johnny so sorely needs him?

An epic and lyrical tour de force, Hinterland reflects upon a notorious political career and returns an unexpected verdict.

Cast: Patrick Malahide, James Hayes, Kieran Ahern, Dearbhla Molloy, Phelim Drew, Lucianne McEvoy and Anna Healy.

Director: Max Stafford-Clark  Designer: Es Devlin  Lighting: Johanna Town  Sound: Paul Arditti  Music: Paddy Cunneen
