'Young Offenders' Teaser Trailer
28 Jun 2016 :
Peter Foott's feature debut opens in September.

Inspired by Ireland’s biggest cocaine seizure of €440 million off the coast of Cork in 2007, The Young Offenders follows two Cork inner-city teenagers, Conor and Jock, as they embark on a 160km road trip on stolen bikes in the hopes of finding an unrecovered bale of coke.

The film described by Ryan Tubridy as “the best Irish film I’ve seen in years” will have its world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh on Friday 8th July. The hotly anticipated screening in the Town Hall Theatre is one of the Fleadh’s top picks and is selling out fast.

Directed by first-time feature writer/director Peter Foott and introduces new talents Alex Murphy and Chris Walley. Well known stand-up comedian PJ Gallagher (Naked Camera) and Hilary Rose (Republic of Telly) also star in the comedy. Foott is no stranger to comedy as he is an award-winning writer/director on the Republic of Telly who also directed The Rubber Bandits infamous Horse Outside video.

The film was shot in some of the most iconic locations around Cork city and along the Wild Atlantic Way last summer, and will be distributed by Wildcard Distribution.
