Phil Lynott
In celebration of Phil Lynott's 71st birthday today August 20th, Break Out Pictures released the brand new trailer for Emer Reynold's hotly-anticipated documentary about legendary Irish rockstar Phil Lynott.

Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away, which is due to release in cinemas later this Autumn, explores the life and music of Thin Lizzy lead singer and rock icon Phil Lynott. The feature doc will trace how a young black boy growing up in working-class 1950’s Dublin became one of Ireland’s greatest rock stars as frontman of Thin Lizzy. Lynott who met his untimely death in 1986 at the young age of 36, was born in Birmingham to a Brazilian father and Irish mother.

As lead singer of Thin Lizzy, Lynott and his group enjoyed international success and Reynolds’ documentary tells his story largely through the words of the performer himself. The film also focuses on many of his best-known songs.

Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away will feature a number of well-known musical talents as contributors including Thin Lizzy’s Eric Bell, Scott Gorham, Darren Wharton, Midge Ure, U2’s Adam Clayton, Suzi Quatro, Huey Lewis, Skid Row’s Brush Shiels, and Metallica’s James Hetfield. 

The film is directed by Emer Reynolds, director of the Emmy and IFTA Award-winning documentary The Farthest. London-based Eagle Rock Entertainment, which specialises in music documentaries and concert films, is handling international sales.

Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away is produced by Universal Music’s Globe Production with backing from Screen Ireland. It is produced by Alan Maher and John Wallace for Cowtown Pictures and Peter Worsley for Eagle Rock Films.

Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away will release in cinemas nationwide later this Autumn.
