EMPIRE OF DIRT - Feature Film by Darren Kelleher, Liam Byrne & Owen O'Mahony

BOLT Productions & AV3 Productions

Shooting Summer 2017


In 18th century Ireland, a wild band of natives struggle to keep their delicate settlement from dissolving into anarchy.

Empire of Dirt is a feature film project based on an original, fictional story set in 1719 Ireland. 60 years before present day there was a major event that changed our characters lives and landscape forever. Present day (1719), these inhabitants are still struggling to re-establish order and identity while living in the ashes of what used to be.

The screenplay begins with a series of incidences that send shockwaves through the settlement, causing major divisions amongst it’s people. This fracture forces everyone on to an impending collision course with a fate nobody wanted.

Our feature was shot on location in Southern Ireland in Summer 2017.
