they call me bridget

A young woman accused of witchcraft must confront her husband’s betrayal, to reclaim her story and find peace.

Inspired by the heartbreaking true story of Bridget Cleary, this is an art-house film that pays homage to Ireland's forgotten women, by exposing abuse, challenging the past, and giving a voice to the silenced.
