Pavee Lackeen: The Traveller Girl is a documentary-style film released in 2005. The film tells the story of an Irish Traveller girl (Winnie Maughan) and her family. Most of the characters are played by the Maughan family themselves, led by youngest daughter Winnie.
Photographer Perry Ogden’s intimate portrait of Winnie, a resilient and spirited young Traveller, and her family who live in a dilapidated trailer on the side of the road in a desolate industrialised area of Dublin.
The film presents an unflinching account of a marginalised community living in extreme poverty in a then prosperous Ireland. It follows Winnie through several weeks of her life, as she struggles with her identity as a young Traveller girl in contemporary Ireland.
Its director and co-writer, Perry Ogden, screened to critic acclaim in Venice, Toronto and London Film Festivals, while winning Best Film at the Galway Film Fleadh, IFTA Award in the category of Breakthrough Talent in 2005. Winnie Maughan was nominated for Best Actress in a Feature Film in the same awards.
