Interview with Ciaran Creagh, the director of “Ann”, interviewer Edvinas Pukšta
"It is such a heartbreaking story that when I started to write it I was amazed that nobody else has done it" - Ciaran Creagh
“Ann” is based on one of the many true stories of its kind. Instead of eating breakfast, 15-year-old Ann has to find a safe place to give birth. A ruthless story about community, faith and what it means to be a modern woman without rights. “Ann” is a captivating and relevant outlook on an important topic far away from our social norms.
