August 31st 2022, Dublin – Volta Pictures (formerly Element Distribution) is delighted to launch the brand-new poster for the award winning feature documentary VICKY, which will go on release in cinemas on Friday 7th October 2022.
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 not only Vicky’s fight to expose the truth of what happened for all women but also her own personal fight to stay alive.
VICKY is a Princess Pictures production 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.
Volta Pictures will release VICKY in Irish cinemas on October 7 www.voltapictures.ie
