Adapted from an acclaimed play by Kirwan, aspiring DJ Jason (Kirwan) teeters on the brink of self-destruction. This is down to his hard-partying lifestyle, whose life revolves around ‘the session’, but who is surprisingly stopped in his tracks by a chance encounter with his homeless, heroin-addicted brother Daniel (Ian Lloyd Anderson) after years without any contact.
Over the course of a bank holiday weekend, the two take the first steps towards reconnecting, reminiscing over better times and tunes, while Jason juggles his various social engagements, including a possible breakthrough gig, in this lively and kinetic film. The two brothers have more in common than they think.
This film gets a late night slot on the program and is introduced by writer/director Dave Tynan who will talk about the film / theatre / club crossover culture in Ireland which is spear-headed by Emmet Kirwan and Panti Bliss.
