Cloughjordan Cine Club will screen Pilgrimage, an Irish production, directed by Brendan Muldowney, and starring Tom Holland, Richard Armitage, Jon Bernthal and John Lynch, this Sunday, November 19, at 8pm.
The film is in Irish, French and English. Travelling through a 13th-century Irish countryside filled with warring clans and Norman conquerors, a small band of Catholic monks bring their land’s most sacred relic to Rome.
The pilgrimage offers the group’s youngest member a profound lesson, one of religious fervour, and the savagery of men who see themselves as soldiers with a cause, who train their ambition on a single, powerful object.
This is a thrilling, viscerally violent dissection of faith, fear, and the critical juncture where they meet.
Pilgrimage will be screened in the Thomas MacDonagh Museum, Main Street, Cloughjordan, at 8pm. Admission: €7.
