Directed by Tommy Creagh / Ireland / 2021 / 16 mins


Christy, a myth-obsessed playwright in his late twenties, finds himself stuck in a rut as he constantly clashes with his father. They go for a tense walk by the local estuary to clear the air, but ghosts wait beside the water. Acheron is a film exploring family, grief, and the creative process.
