Pavee Lackeen

Available on DVD

Featuring a cast of mostly non-professionals actors – using their own stories to shape the narrative – filmmaker Perry Ogden’s debut feature follows Winnie, a ten-year-old Irish Traveller girl. Living with her mother and siblings in a dilapidated roadside trailer on the outskirts of Dublin, she struggles with her identity as a traveller. Following Winnie over several weeks of her life, capturing the hardships she faces along the way, Pavee Lackeen is an intimate portrait of a resilient and spirited young girl, her proud, dignified family and their day-to-day struggles against faceless bureaucracy, poverty and prejudice.
