THE NEW MUSIC - A story Parkinsons, Punk & Friendship

Classically trained pianist Adrian (Cillein Mc Evoy) has a promising career ahead of him, all to be taken away after a Young Onset Parkinson's disease diagnosis. Overwhelmed by fear and denial, he runs away from the control of his up-tight family, destination Dublin, where he embarks on a path of self-discovery leading him to the punk band The Cellmates, who are everything but up-tight. Their rebellious lifestyle and punchy music provide an exciting and lively distraction and contrast to his previous life.

“Director Chiara Viale is Italian and her camera chases about the Dublin streets looking for fun and good times – it made me desperate to get on a plane and go somewhere, to see something new." - The Guardian

“Tunes are at this Irish toe-tapper’s heart – and David Sangster’s original score hits all the right notes." - The Sun

"This is an energetic, blood & sweat kind of film, it's got something to say, there's attitude here." The Dublin Inquirer

" A brave and important film” - IFTA
