In HOLY ISLAND, Rosa and David, two lost souls, try to escape a desolate purgatory, which appears as a run-down port town. The pair meet awaiting a boat to leave the island, both longing to return home. Together they are forced to traverse an abnormal maze, piecing together their past lives through shared conversations and memories. They must find a rare ticket, and overcome their own personal struggles, before becoming stuck in this limbo forever.
HOLY ISLAND is an award-winning Irish experimental drama, directed and written by Robert Manson. HOLY ISLAND was made for the Authored Works Scheme for the Arts Council, which provides film artists with the creative and editorial freedom to make a feature-length authored cultural film work from a strong artistic point of view.
HOLY ISLAND will screen exclusively at Irish cinemas from October 14th.
