VICKY – ACCLAIMED DOCUMENTARY ON VICKY PHELAN TO AIR ON RTÉ ONE ON WEDNESDAY 23rd NOVEMBER AT 9.35PM.
In 2018 on the steps of The High Court, Vicky Phelan gave a now-infamous address where she exposed one of the worst women’s health scandals in Irish history, the cervical cancer debacle. VICKY is a profound and intimate journey into Vicky’s fight to expose the truth of what happened for all women and her own personal fight to extend her life, a fight which sadly ended when Vicky passed away last Monday.
From director Sasha King (Akron), this powerful documentary was voted Best Irish Documentary by the Dublin Film Critics Circle at this year’s Dublin International Film Festival. It was also nominated for an Irish Council of Civil Liberties (ICCL) Human Rights Award at the festival.
A Princess Pictures production, VICKY was produced by Sasha King, Bill Snodgrass, and Vicky Phelan with the support of Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland. Executive producers are Martina Niland, and Lesley McKimm for Screen Ireland.
