2015 marks an exciting new chapter in the life of Scratch Films as we diverge into the production of feature length fiction films for the first time while continuing our staple of documentaries and comedy. Our pioneering fiction film, ‘Southpaw Gypsy’ is an adaptation of the true life story of Irish Olympic boxer Francis Barrett who McGrath first focused on in his 1998 acclaimed feature documentary ‘Southpaw’. With a screenplay by top US writer Justin Zackham (‘The Bucket List’) the film promises to be an exciting adventure and an opportunity to showcase this inspirational story to a global audience.  This is a story about loyalty, heartbreak, laughter and glory. It’s an incredible story of triumph in the face of adversity
