Sunday 26th May 2013 – Garter Lane Waterford
Pilgrim Hill tells the story of Jimmy Walshe, a middle-aged bachelor farmer living in rural Ireland. Regarded by his neighbours as a harmless misfit, Jimmy has spent all his adult life as the caretaker of the crumbling family farm on the outskirts of a small town. He is limited, non-educated, isolated, yet through relentless determination gets through each day as best he can by keeping a smile on his face. Jimmy also cares for his ill, bed-ridden father as well as dealing with the daily routine of running the farm.
Pilgrim Hill aims to shed light on the dark side of rural Ireland, where middle-aged men and women are living out their lives in isolation and loneliness. – Galway Film Fleadh 2012
