A new Irish film called Dublin Oldschool will be released nationwide on June 29th, Element Pictures has announced.
According to the synopsis, “Dublin Oldschool tells the story of Jason, a wannabe DJ, on a drug-fuelled trip through the streets of Dublin as he stumbles from one session to another. Somewhere between the DJs, decks, and drug busts he stumbles across a familiar face from the past, his brother Daniel.
“Daniel, an educated heroin addict, is living 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 stars Emmet Kirwan (’71, Heartbreak), Ian Lloyd Anderson (Love/Hate, Game of Thrones), Seana Kerslake (A Date for Mad Mary, Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope) and Sarah Greene (Noble, Rebellion). It is directed and co-written by Dave Tynan (Heartbreak, Just Sayin’) with Kirwan.
Tynan says: “This is a homegrown film, from its origins as Emmet’s play to its financing and production. I’m particularly proud I made it with the same gang I’ve been working with for years. We had an extraordinary cast and crew.”
