Documentary filmmaking is our passion. It’s the basis of our style and informs our work on a narrative level.

 

 

Turas na Hailse – The Cancer Journey

Phantom Limb Productions, in conjunction with Hawkeye films present our Documentary ‘Turas na hAilse – The Cancer Journey’ originally broadcast Wednesday 19th April 2017 at 8.30pm on TG4. Also screened at the 2017  Galway Film Fleadh,  as part of the ‘ON THE BOX’ programme, a selection of made-for-television documentaries.

Twice a week cancer patients from Donegal board a bus and travel five hours and 200 kilometres to receive radiotherapy in University Hospital Galway, their nearest treatment centre. When in Galway they take residence in Inis Aoibhinn for the week, a haven away from the hospital where people help each other and rejuvenate as a group. Turas na hAilse – The Cancer Journey’ follows them as they make this journey together, exhibiting resilience, generosity and spirit under difficult – but unifying – circumstances.

A project very close to our hearts, we started shooting it in March of 2015 and got to know some of the bravest, most resilient and down-to-earth people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting.
