Limerick to host European premiere of award-winning film Savage Waters



Savage Waters – the European premiere award-winning film will be shown at the Belltable, Limerick

The film is being screened as part of the Richard Harris International Film Festival

The European premiere of a feature documentary about a mission to find and surf a spectacular big wave in the Atlantic Ocean will take place in Limerick this weekend.

The award-winning Savage Waters will be the second of two films to be screened at the Belltable which is one of the venues for the Richard Harris International Film Festival.


The screening takes place on Friday, October 28, at 5:45pm. The film’s director Mikey Corker and Taz Knight (protagonist) will be in attendance at the premiere. Both will take part in a Questions and Answers session after the screening.

The screening will be followed by Q&A with the Director and Producers.

The film, which is narrated by legendary British actor Charles Dance, who has acted in acclaimed shows such as Games of Thrones and The Crown, has received an amazing score by Avawaves and the cinematography has been praised by film critics.

A 19th century treasure-hunter’s journal inspires a captivating journey to seek out and surf a mythical, never-ridden wave in some of the most remote and dangerous waters of the Atlantic Ocean. A must-see for those interested in big wave surfing and thrill-seeking.

The World premiere of Savage Waters opened the DocLands film Festival in California in May and, last month, it won Best Feature Doc at the Wales International Film Festival. 

The film will premiere in the UK next week when it opens for the Liverpool Film Festival. It has also been nominated for Best Doc and Best Picture at the Paladino D’Oro in Italy which takes place in November.
