Wildcard Distribution has acquired the tense Irish language thriller Doineann with a cinema release scheduled for 28th January 2022.

Doineann, the Irish for ‘stormy weather’, is the feature debut from Damian McCann with the screenplay penned by Aislinn Clarke.  Starring Love/Hate actor Peter Coonan, Bríd Brennan (Calm With Horses, Brooklyn), Clare Monnelly (Moone Boy), and Sean T. O’Meallaigh (Vikings), it tells the story of the disappearance of a woman and her baby on a remote Irish island. Her husband (Coonan) must put his trust in the island’s retired policewoman (Brennan) to help find his family before a storm hits the island. 

“We are thrilled and excited that our feature film Doineann can be experienced by Irish cinema audiences in the way we had always hoped,” said director Damian McCann, when speaking about the release. “We think that audiences will be thrilled and excited too!”

Since the film’s world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh earlier this year, Doineann has gone on to screen at Newport Beach Film Festival in California, the Foyle Film Festival and the Belfast Film Festival where star Bríd Brennan was presented with the Reálta Award for Outstanding Contribution to Cinema.

Doineann was produced by Diarmuid Lavery, Christopher Myers and Michael Hewitt for the multi-award-winning film production company DoubleBand Films, with the support of the Irish Language Broadcast Fund, BBC Gaeilge, and TG4.

The film will be released in cinemas across Ireland on the 28th January 2022 by Wildcard Distribution.
