“And of course, we’re thrilled that we’re able to welcome two extraordinary film actors, Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix, alongside director Garth Davis to the festival. I know that Dublin is going to make them very welcome.”

Set in the Holy Land in the first century, Mary Magdalene is the story of a young woman who leaves her small fishing village and family to join a new movement. Inspired by its charismatic leader, Jesus of Nazareth, and his teachings, Mary sets out with the disciples on the journey to Jerusalem, where she finds herself at the centre of the founding story of Christianity.

Mary Magdalene is an exciting new addition to this year’s Audi Dublin International Film Festival (21st Feb-4th March), which also includes 6 World Premieres, well over 100 Irish Premieres, and Immersive Stories, an innovative Virtual Reality conference.

Further special guests include Bill Pullman, Vanessa Redgrave, Lynne Ramsay, Paul Schrader, Barry Keoghan, Cillian Murphy and many, many more.

Tickets for Mary Magdalene (Savoy Cinema 28th Feb, 18.30) and all the events at the Audi Dublin International Film Festival are available now at www.diff.ie.
