IFTN Caught Up with Emmet Kirwan & Ian Lloyd Anderson Ahead of the National Release of 'Dublin OldSchool'
21 Jun 2018 : Nathan Griffin
IFTN journalist Nathan Griffin caught up with the stars of the film and original stage play, Emmet Kirwan & Ian Lloyd Anderson to find out about their experience of transforming the critically acclaimed two man play into a feature-length film on the big screen.

Following on from the viral success of ‘Heartbreak’, which led to director Dave Tynan and writer Emmet Kirwan picking up an IFTA for ‘Best Short Film’ at the 2017 IFTA Film & Drama Awards, the pairs' debut feature film 'Dublin Oldschool' is due for release in cinemas nationwide next Friday, June 29th.

'Dublin Oldschool' tells the story of Jason, a wannabe DJ, on a drug-fuelled trip through the streets of Dublin. Somewhere between the DJs, decks, and drug busts he stumbles across a familiar face from the past, his brother Daniel. An educated heroin addict, Daniel lives on the streets. The brothers haven’t seen or spoken to each other in years but over a lost weekend they reconnect and reminisce over raves, tunes and their troubled past. Two brothers living very different lives might have more in common than they think.

The film, which is adapted from the successful stage play of the same name, is directed by Dave Tynan, and co-written by Emmet Kirwan & Tynan. The film boasts a great cast that includes Emmet Kirwan (‘Heartbreak’, ‘71’), Ian Lloyd Anderson (‘Love/Hate’, ‘GoT’), Seána Kerslake (‘A Date for Mad Mary’, ‘Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope’), Sarah Greene (‘Penny Dreadful’, ‘Black 47’), Ciaran Grace (‘Love/Hate’, ‘Black 47’), and Mark O’Halloran (‘Adam & Paul’, ‘History’s Future’).

The film is produced by Warrior Films.
