Sisterly bonds are pushed to breaking point in this simmering drama set on the Irish border, the debut feature from acclaimed shorts director Cathy Brady.

Inseparable sisters raised in a small town on the Irish border, Lauren (Nora-Jane Noone) and Kelly’s (Nika McGuigan) lives were shattered with the mysterious death of their mother. Left to pick up the pieces after her sister abruptly disappeared, Lauren is suddenly confronted with the family’s dark and traumatic past when Kelly returns home after being reported missing for a whole year. With the intense sisterhood reignited, Kelly’s desire to unearth their history is not welcomed by all in the small town, as rumours and malice spread like wildfire, threatening to push them over the edge.

The preview screening on Wednesday 1 September will feature an in-person Q&A with director Cathy Brady and actor Nora-Jane Noone.

"Mesmerising...Wildfire vibrantly entwines personal and political trauma." - Jake Cole, Slant Magazine
