In The Revenant we meet Francie Brady, many years since the events of The Butcher Boy, we meet Francie Brady. Brady now inhabits a form of rarefied space, returning from God’s knows where to the place where he onece ruled the roost, the place where he once committed a heinous crime. But he is a changed person – a shell of what he was, a ghost, a phantom – a Revenant.

Sound Supervision by Mark Mc Grath
Directed by Joe O’Byrne
