A young dad in rural Ireland must face his anxiety around gender and bullying when his baby is born intersex.

This upcoming rural drama is set to be one of the first ever non-fiction films to tackle the issue of intersex in Ireland, through the lens of a new parent coping with his baby’s diagnosis. LAMBING is currently in post-production and will begin its festival run in 2022.

LAMBING is funded by the Kildare ShortGrass Film Bursary which comes with €12,500 in production funding. This project is also the 2020 winner of the prestigious IMDb Script to Screen Award, which comes with an additional £5,000 to support production.
