Hydebank (2019)

  • Short, Documentary
  • 17min

Those who make it through the gates of Hydebank arguably face a more concentrated version of their own neighbourhood; drugs, sectarianism, suicide and violence are daily norms inside this 35 acre compound. To the surprise of many, Ryan, a 21 year old convicted criminal has formed an incredible bond with these submissive animals; feeding, cleaning, shearing and clipping their toenails. He now dreams of becoming a shepherd upon his release. However, he will have to wait to try to fulfil this. A brutal act by Ryan 4 years ago is dictating the rest of his life.
