The Runway

This film is close to our hearts, as it was made by our CEO’s cousin Ian Power. Ian is an up and coming Irish writer/ producer who has won many awards for his short films, and now for this spectacular new feature.

The Runway is inspired by the true story of a South American pilot who landed his plane near Mallow, in 1983. Against all odds, the people of the town come together to build a runway to get him home and briefly catch the imagination of the nation. It is the story of Paco, a young boy without a father who adopts the pilot and convinces the town to build a runway to get him home.  This is a must watch film with great performances from the leading actors and a fantastic storyline.
