Deadpan Pictures has announced that ‘Halal Daddy’ (Halaleluja-Irensind Menschlich!), directed by Conor McDermottroe, will open across 44 German cinemas this Thursday, June 21st 2018.

Co-written by Sligo native McDermottroe and ‘Viva’ screenwriter Mark O’Halloran, ‘Halal Daddy’ boasts a superb cast, including Nikesh Patel (‘Indian Summers’, ‘London Has Fallen’) who stars as lead Raghdan, Colm Meaney (‘The Journey’, ‘Hell On Wheels’), Art Malik (‘True Lies’, ‘Sex and The City 2’), Sarah Bolger (‘In America’, ‘The Spiderwick Chronicles’), Deirdre O Kane (‘Noble’, ‘Intermission’, ‘Moone Boy’), Paul Tylak (The Secret of Kells, Stew, Father Ted) and David Kross (The Reader, War Horse).

McDermottroe was also surrounded by a stellar production crew whilst filming HALAL DADDY, including Director of Photography Mel Griffith (‘Ricky: Three’s A Crowd’), Production Designer Conor Dennison (‘A Dark Song’) and Costume Designer Kerry Gooding (‘Game of Thrones’).

Raghdan Aziz, a young man of British-Indian Muslim heritage, is happy in his new home on the west coast of Ireland. This beach-fronted retreat is the perfect getaway from his controlling father. He has escaped the burden of his legacy and discovered a new sense of community. Living with his adoring aunt and uncle, Raghdan hangs out with his surf buddies Derek and Neville and has mapped out a future with girlfriend, Maeve Logan.

On Raghdan’s 21st birthday, his father Amir arrives from England with the gift of a run-down meat factory. How will Raghdan cope with this poisoned chalice of a present – a career opportunity that he never wanted?

‘Halal Daddy’ is a fish out of water story about a loveable outsider, who must decide to embrace or defy his culture in the name of fitting in.

Speaking about the announcement, Director Conor McDermottroe said:

“Great news that Halaleluja is opening in 44 cinemas across Germany today the21st of June. It’s a wonderful heartfelt, uplifting story that I’m sure audiences will love.”

Halal Daddy’ is produced by Ailish McElmeel for Deadpan Pictures (‘Can’t Cope, Won’tCope’, ‘Nowhere Fast’, ‘Burning Wishes’) in Ireland and Hermann Florin for Benrae Florin Film Ireland and Florin Film (‘Hanni & Nanni’, ‘I’m off Then’, ‘Swansong: The Story of Occi Byrne’,’Outriders’) in Germany. The film is co-financed by the Irish Film Board/Bord Scannán na hÉireann with support from Eurimages.
