Mark O’Connor’s pop-capping Dublin crime flick, Between The Canals, is out on March 18 at the IFI in Temple Bar, and stars a deranged Damien Dempsey in his acting debut as the head-butting loon, Dotsy.
New Irish film Goes on release March 18th in the Irish Film Institute, Temple Bar, Dublin, Ireland. 'Between The Canals follows three small time criminals from Dublin's North Inner City as they each aspire to be somebody in a fast changing society: Liam (Hyland) a small time dealer who wants to quit his life of crime to become an electrician and provide for his girlfriend and son; Dots (Coonan), a crazy, irresponsible thug with ambitions to become a big time dealer and Scratchcard (Jones), a drug user with no ambitions but to stay on social welfare and watch the world go by. Liam is torn between life in the flats and his responsibility to be a good father to his son. He has to just get through this one day and maybe things will look brighter on the other side. But it's Saint Patrick's Day and, in Dublin City, this means trouble everywhere. A heartbreaking and occasionally hilarious story of loyalty, duty and masculinity'.
Starring Liam Hyland, Peter Coonan, Stephen Jones & Damien Dempsey. Written and Directed by Mark O'Connor
