Watch the trailer for Irish sci-fi film 'Sea Fever'

The trailer for Sea Fever, a new science-fiction thriller directed by Neasa Hardiman has been released.

The film, which was also written by Hardiman, stars the likes of Hermione Corfield, Connie Nielsen, and Dougray Scott and was given its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

Sea Fever, which is due for release in April, tells the story of the “misfortunes of a crew of a West of Ireland trawler, marooned at sea, struggle for their lives against a growing parasite in their water supply.”

According to the films’ official synopsis: “Siobhán’s a marine biology student who prefers spending her days alone in a lab. She has to endure a week on a ragged fishing trawler, where she’s miserably at odds with the close-knit crew. But out in the deep Atlantic, an unfathomable life form ensnares the boat. When members of the crew succumb to a strange infection, Siobhán must overcome her alienation and anxiety to win the crew’s trust, before everyone is lost.”

Writer and direct Hardiman had a team made up of Ruairí O’Brien who worked on cinematography, John McDonnell and Brendan McCarthy on producing duties and Christoffer Franzén who delivered the score.
