Actor Will Poulter has said he hopes his role in Jack Reynor's directorial debut helps people in the UK gain a "better understanding" of the Great Famine.

Poulter plays an Irish farmer who encounters a ghost on his farm in Bainne (Milk), Reynor's short film set six years into the crisis in 1851.

The British star, who mastered lines of dialogue as Gaeilge for the film, admitted he had to educate himself on that dark era of Irish history before the cameras began rolling.
