Pigsy tells the story of an artist who struggled for his whole life with severe dyslexia. His school days were defined by the frustration of trying to make sense of the words in front of him. His teachers kicked him out of class, held him back for extra lessons after school, and had him repeat entire academic years, all while he tried to understand and make sense of words. Being dyslexic brought feelings of shame and inferiority, but Pigsy took those feelings and channeled them into something that would allow him to express himself.
Premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh 2018.
