Special Preview Event: KNEECAP (2024) + Q&A

London Breeze is delighted and excited to be hosting one of the most anticipated films of the year at the Riverside Studios as part of our ‘Summer Breeze’ programme of screening events and ahead of its general release. Be one of the first to see this explosive comedy drama for yourself and meet some of the creative team involved.

Of the 80,000 native Irish speakers, 6,000 live in the North of Ireland and three of them became a rap group called Kneecap. This is the real life story of how this anarchic Belfast trio became the unlikely figureheads of a civil rights movement to save and reinvigorate their mother tongue.

Rich Peppiatt’s award-winning raucous and infectious debut feature is a heightened tale of Irish language hip-hop group Kneecap’s origin story. It won the Audience Award at Sundance US and opened Sundance London with four sold out screenings. 

Producer and previous Head of Irish Film London, Gerry Maguire, will host the Q&A with guests, KNEECAP producer, Jack Tarling and members of the cast. 

You will also have the opportunity to learn or practise some Irish as our friends from Irish language organisation, Conradh na Gaeilge, will be in the foyer an hour before the screening with a pop-up Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking area).
