Kneecap to open in Irish cinemas August 8th

Kneecap
Wildcard has announced that Rich Peppiatt’s award-winning feature film Kneecap will open in Irish cinemas on August 8th 2024.

Tickets are now on sale online through the websites of participating cinemas. Kneecap won an Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival, and has been receiving rave reviews internationally. The film will open the 2024 Galway Film Fleadh in July.

Based on the origin story of Irish-language rap trio Kneecap, the film stars the band’s Mo Chara, Móglaí Bap and DJ Próvaí in their acting debuts alongside the Academy Award nominated Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs, 12 Years a Slave), Simone Kirby (Hidden Assets, Jimmy’s Hall), Jessica Reynolds (Outlander), Fionnuala Flaherty (Ros na Rún) and Josie Walker (Belfast, The Wonder). Set in west Belfast in 2019, it chronicles how fate brings the trio together and how they then go on to “change the sound of Irish music forever”.

Described by the LA Times as “reminiscent of the early Eminem”, the band Kneecap is gaining critical acclaim for their artful blend of Irish and English rap about the reality of growing up in post-Troubles Belfast.

Wildcard’s Patrick O’Neill said “We can’t wait for everyone to experience this once in a generation Irish film this summer. Kneecap has been universally loved by audiences all over the world and we are so excited to bring it home to the 32 counties of Ireland. Seo Linn!”

Kneecap was produced by Trevor Birney and Jack Tarling for Fine Point Films and Mother Tongues Films, with Patrick O’Neill at Wildcard acting as Co-Producer.  Funding for the film was provided by Northern Ireland Screen, the Irish Language Broadcast Fund, Fís Éireann / Screen Ireland, the BFI (awarding National Lottery funding), Coimisiún na Meán and TG4, with backing from Great Point Media.
