A ghostly encounter forces a young woman to re evaluate her life after a bereavement.
The third instalment of our trilogy ‘Stories from the Famine’, this is a dramatic,
modern day ghost story with a twist on the evictions that took place in Ireland in
‘We wanted the third feature to have a younger audience. One thing that was very
obvious with the screenings in America with the first 2 films, the older generation
loved them, they really struck home the history of where they came from as Irish
Americans, but what about the younger generations who want more than a history lesson.
I was already writing a ghost story, so this became the story of the ‘Girl in the
Window’, inspired by true events from the evictions that took place in the 1850’s.
The workhouses were filled to capacity and more arrived everyday, dying in the street,
starved to death.’
