Leitrim man Stephen’s documentary to premiere  at Galway Film Fleadh

Galway Film Fleadh

Lurganboy man poet, Stephen Murphy has scripted a short new documentary eleven minutes film “The Trust Machine,” which will premiere at this year’s 32nd annual Galway Film Fleadh, which runs online from Tuesday, July 20 to Sunday, July 25.

Stephen was very happy when he recently learned that “The Trust Machine” will feature at the prestigious Galway Film Fleadh. He says “I’m delighted to say that “The Trust Machine,” a short film written by myself and directed by Ristéard Ó Domhnaill, will premiere at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh.

“Many of you may be familiar with Ristéard’s work in making ‘The Pipe’ back in 2010 about the Rossport community in Mayo and the Shell2Sea movement, and more recently in Atlantic, an exceptional fisheries documentary that was released in 2016 and narrated by Brendan Gleeson.

“It’s been a huge personal privilege to work with him in the making of this, and a lovely honour to have the premiere for it as part of this year’s Film Fleadh” Stephen added. Meantime the Galway Film Fleadh is an Oscars awards qualifying festival.
