A Song For Dad

"This moving and beautiful film will haunt you for years" Irvine Welsh.

Emmy award winning documentary maker Niall McKay takes us on a charming and witty journey from the depths of suicide and depression to the heights of new beginnings, marriage proposals and homecomings.

A Song for Dad explores Niall's relationship with his jazz musician father, Jim, who in the 1970s raised his two young sons on his own in Dublin. Masterfully told, beautifully shot, and scored by Jim's jazz music, this film questions what it means to be a son, a husband, a father.
