In this fiercely original sex, drugs and hip hop biopic, Kneecap play themselves, laying down a global rallying cry for the defense of native cultures.

When fate brings Belfast schoolteacher JJ into the orbit of self-confessed ‘low life scum’ Naoise and Liam Og, the needle drops on a hip hop act like no other.

Rapping in their native Irish language, Kneecap fast become the unlikely figureheads of a Civil Rights movement to save their mother tongue.

But the trio must first overcome police, paramilitaries and politicians trying to silence their defiant sound - whilst their anarchic approach to life often makes them their own worst enemies.

The 6.20pm screening on Fri 9 Aug will be followed by a Q&A with Kneecap and director Rich Peppiatt.

"...a riotous, drug-laced triumph in the name of freedom that bridges political substance and crowd-pleasing entertainment." Variety
