October cinema release for ‘Vicky’ film documentary

The newly released poster for 'Vicky', the film documentary.

AWARD- winning feature documentary ‘Vicky’, which highlights the work of Limerick womens’ health campaigner Vicky Phelan, will go on release in cinemas on Friday, October 7.

In 2018 on the steps of The High Court, Vicky Phelan gave a memorable address in which she exposed one of the worst women’s health scandals in Irish history, the cervical cancer debacle.

‘Vicky’ is described as a “profound and intimate journey into not only Vicky’s fight to expose the truth of what happened for all women but also her own personal fight to stay alive”.

From director Sasha King, this powerful documentary was voted Best Irish Documentary by the Dublin Film Critics Circle at this year’s Dublin International Film Festival and was nominated for an Irish Council of Civil Liberties (ICCL) Human Rights Award at the festival.

‘Vicky’ is a Princess Pictures production produced by Sasha King, Bill Snodgrass, and Vicky Phelan with the support of Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland. Executive producers are Martina Niland, and Lesley McKimm for Screen Ireland.
