Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová's documentary The Swell Season is set for Irish cinema release.

Wildcard Distribution are giving Irish audiences the chance to watch the acclaimed documentary when it hits Irish cinemas on December 6th.

Speaking about the release, director Nick August-Perna said: “We are beyond thrilled and honoured to have Wildcard Distribution bring our film into Irish cinemas. Ireland provided a powerful setting for so many of the enduring moments in the documentary, so it is very exciting for us to come full circle and share the film with a wide audience here.”

The documentary follows Glen and Markéta through a three-year period of incredible intensity, pressure and passion.

As the two wake up in strange towns and navigate a new realm of public exposure, they undergo intense changes that lead them to question their love, their ambitions, and their identities.
