A Belfast filmmaker has spoken of his pride after his debut, low-budget feature, Black Medicine, was accepted for this year’s Galway Film Fleadh.

Colum Eastwood, whose actor brother Desmond starred in the multi award-winning television show Normal People, wrote and directed the suspenseful thriller about Jo, a black-market medic who carries out illegal operations for the criminal underworld. When she gives refuge to a young girl she must choose between breaking her medical oath or crossing her ruthless employers.
