17th Nov 2020
The much-anticipated new film by Julien Temple, CROCK OF GOLD: A FEW ROUNDS WITH SHANE MACGOWAN set to open in Irish cinemas from December 4th.
The theatrical release will kick off with a special cinema event on the night of December 4th when audiences will be treated to exclusive never-seen-before footage from MacGowan’s 60th birthday concert performances from MacGowan and friends including Bono, Damien Dempsey, Glen Hansard, Lisa O’Neill and Sharon Shannon.
Helmed by the multi-award-winning and critically acclaimed film, documentary and music video director Julien Temple (Glastonbury, The Filth and the Fury, London: The Modern Babylon) and produced by Johnny Depp CROCK OF GOLD: A FEW ROUNDS WITH SHANE MACGOWAN is a cinematic exploration of the legendary poet, punk and Pogue Shane MacGowan.
Combining interviews, previously unseen archive footage and specially commissioned animations with an impressive soundtrack, the documentary details Shane’s explosive existence from his early days growing up in Ireland, to time spent on the mean streets of London and embracing the punk scene, to forming The Pogues. We discover MacGowan’s passions, humour, and deep knowledge of music, history, spirituality, and popular culture.
The film is a vision of the world through the eyes of the great punk poet himself and an intimate cast of close friends and family members, all channeled through Temple’s inimitable and eternally vibrant lens.
The documentary had its world premiere at the San Sebastian International Film Festival in September where it won the Special Jury Prize and positive reviews.
CROCK OF GOLD was produced by Johnny Depp, Stephen Deuters, Stephen Malit and Julien Temple for Infinitum Nihil, Nitrate Films, Hanway Films, BBC Music and Warner Music Entertainment. Wild Atlantic was the Irish co-producer on the project which received funding from Screen Ireland.
