Piseogaí is the Irish word for Superstitions
When searching for inspiration for what I wanted to write my film about I looked to when I lived in England this past summer. I spent a lot of time telling the friends I met there the stories that all Irish people hear as children about the sinister fairies and the superstitions that come with them. That experience of telling others about our unique beliefs made me realise how much I value Irish culture and our stories.
I wanted to make a film inspired by those stories but also one centred around emotion and atmosphere as those are the parts of film that have always resonated the most with me.
This film is about a frightened, yet determined young child who has been trapped in a fairy realm and is finally making her escape, but there is someone stalking close behind her.
