A Bump Along the Way – with Q&A

7:30 PM 23rd January 2020 Seamus Heaney HomePlace

Written by Tess McGowan, directed by Shelly Love and produced by Louise Gallagher, this heart-warming film centres on the awkward relationship between Pamela, an immature mum and her disapproving daughter, Allegra.

A Bump Along the Way stars Bronagh Gallagher as Pamela and Lola Pettigrew as Allegra, in two powerful and heartfelt performances. When Pamela becomes pregnant following a drunken one-night stand, the relationship between mother and daughter is put to the test. In equal parts funny and poignant, the film’s strength lies in the universality of its story – which is beautifully told and shot.

A Bump Along the Way was filmed in Derry and features a wonderful supporting cast including Mary Moulds, Dan Gordon and Paddy C Courtney.

Join us as Louise Gallagher and director Shelly Love introduce the film and take part in a short Q&A following the screening.
