Without Name is the first feature length film from Lorcan Finnegan and writer Garret Shanley, the same team behind the short Foxes. The film celebrates ancient Irish folklore, returning it to its dark roots of mischievous fairy folk. The use of this mythology suits the eco-horror themes perfectly. We all know to steer clear of fairy rings and where the wrong places to be after dark are out in the country side. Without Name plays well on Irish superstitions.
Following on from the announcement last month that Irish films The Secret Scripture, Unless and Maudie as well as Northern Irish film The Journey were selected for the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, it was announced today that two more Irish productions will be having their world premieres at TIFF. Irish film Without Name and the Irish co-production Forever Pure have joined the list of films chosen to be shown at the prestigious film festival.
