“A beautifully photographed drama and fine debut.” - Variety

Set in the wild mountains of Connemara, Shelter tells the story of friendless and guileless recluse John Cunliffe who is suddenly propelled into manhood at the ripe old age of 28. When his over-cosseting parents pass away, John inherits mountain land that is in the way of a lucrative wind-farm development, and he is forced to navigate the choppy waters of romance, trust and vengeance for the first time. The ensuing drama is a taut and absorbing late coming-of-age tale from the North western tip of Europe. 

Faintly echoed films such as The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser and Bad Boy BubbyShelter is a look at what happens when a socially inept recluse must navigate friendship and love for the first time, and the role toxic masculinity plays in undermining both. This strong and compelling drama about a man whose identity still hasn’t fully formed yet is enhanced by strong naturalistic performances, beautiful cinematography and a mesmerising score. 

Presented by the Consulate General of Ireland.
