The Farthest

Last year I had the privilege of working on this utterly beautiful, life affirming feature documentary:

Written and Directed by Emer Reynolds and produced by Crossing The Line, it first screened as a special presentation at this years ADIFF, where it took home the Audience Award, the award for Best Irish Documentary, and the George Byrne Maverick Award for director Emer Reynolds. It had it's world premiere at this year's Tribeca Film Festival. It has since traveled to festivals all over the world, picking up amazing reviews and audiences reactions where ever it goes. It has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes! It's had a cinema release in Ireland (via Wildcard Distribution), where it has become the highest grossing feature documentary of the year at the the box office, and has since been released theatrically in the US and the UK to further acclaim. This week it has expanded it's screens in the UK:


In late August it aired on PBS in the US and last week it had it's Irish television premiere on RTE. The audience reaction has been amazing. This article shows viewers responses to the Irish airing. If you are in Ireland you can now watch the full length feature version of the film on the RTE Player. The film is continuing with it's international festival run, too.
