In the presence of director Luke McManus

Those in power write the history, those who struggle write the songs.

Atmospherically shot in black and white, this musical odyssey travels the length of Dublin’s North Circular Road, from the Phoenix Park to Dublin Port, exploring the history, music and streetscapes of this legendary artery. While exploring many dark narratives from the city’s history, from colonialism, to mental health, to drug wars, imprisonment, and the struggle for women’s liberation, the film is also smattered with Dublin humour and celebrates the power of community – evident in the battle to save the legendary Cobblestone Pub, and in the celebrations for Kellie Harrington’s homecoming. This magical journey is enriched with musical vignettes from local artists including John Francis Flynn, Ian Lynch & Gemma Dunleavy.

"Beautiful, visually and sonically striking. A heartfelt love letter to Dublin." (VARIETY)
