Rocky Ross Muc Gets US Release
Rocky Ros Muc, our 2017 Best Feature Documentary, will screen will be released in cinemas in America this fall.
The documentary tells the gripping story of boxer Sean Mannion and the story of the Irish in Boston. From humble beginnings, to challenging the world title crown. From the quiet Gaeltacht village of Ros Muc in County Galway, to the criminal underworld of James ‘Whitey’ Bulger and the mean streets of Boston. Rocky Ros Muc examines spirit inside the ring and troubles outside; the reality of emigration and its impact on identity.
The film will premiere in both New York and Los Angeles on Friday October 6th and in Boston on Friday October 13th. It will screen at Cinema Village, New York and at Laemmle Music Hall Theatre, Beverly Hills. In Boston, the film will screen at the Regal Fenway 13 cinema.
