The tense Irish thriller TIGER RAID starring Brian Gleeson (Rebellion), Damien Molony (Kill Your Friends), and Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond) has been released across various Video On Demand platforms today.

The film follows two Irish mercenaries working in a private security crew in the Middle East.  They have been assigned to kidnap the daughter of a powerful man as part of a major robbery – a Tiger Raid.  One of them has a brutal and unrepentant view of the world, defined by fear and adoration of their invisible but omnipresent boss while the other is recklessly ambitious, hungry to progress through the ranks of the crew.  As the raid progresses, their frenzied world turns in on itself as past misdeeds come to the surface.

TIGER RAID is a revelatory journey into the dark hearts of men, full of twists, shocks and surprises, driven by the savage poetry of its dialogue and a breakout performance from Brian Gleeson.

The film which Donnellan co-wrote with director Simon Dixon and producer Gareth Coulam Evans, based on Mick Donnellan’s stage play ‘Radio Luxembourg’ had its world premiere at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year and also screened at the A-list Edinburgh Film Festival and Galway Film Fleadh during the summer.

The film was produced by Dixon Baxi Evans in the UK with Samson Films (Once) in Ireland with funding from the Irish Film Board.
