'Spears' to show at Buncrana Cinema 13.04.22

SPEARS is the new thriller from Donegal filmmaker Gerard Lough. Packed with twists and turns, the plot kicks off when a private investigator is sent from Ireland to Florence, Italy to track down a woman who mysteriously vanished.
Meanwhile in London, a dissident republican does an arm's deal with a new seller he does not trust. In Berlin, a scam artist spends a weekend with a married woman he tries to convince to leave with him.

Each of the three men make a startling discovery which forces them to team up back in Ireland and take revenge on those who have wronged them. Fittingly, the film’s title is taken from the Emily Bronte quote; “Treachery and violence are spears pointed by both ends; they wound those who resort to them worse than their enemies.” Typical of the mystery / thriller genre, the film is a stylish looking affair with tension and fear in abundance but trust in short supply. Over half of the film was shot in Donegal.
Busy Donegal actor Aidan O'Sullivan (Night People) leads a cast of exciting new comers which also includes local actors Michael Leddy and Kieran Kelly. Lough: "The cast of Spears were are the best I have ever worked with. Each of the seven principal actors are potential break out stars and I have no doubt we are going to be seeing more of them on screen in the years to come. After a preview screening, their performances were one of the most talked about aspects of the film."

The film's release date was held back so it could be released in cinemas at a time when audiences are returning in larger numbers. Lough: "There is nothing like seeing your work on the big screen, so we are all delighted that initial audiences will get to experience Spears that way. Having it shown at a cinema as distinctive and beautiful as Buncrana Cinema is the icing on the cake."
Spears is showing at Buncrana Cinema from Friday April 15th to Sunday 17th.
