The New Music


Winner of The Spirit of IndieCork Award at the IndieCork Film Festival and selected for the 2020 Chicago Irish Film Festival , THE NEW MUSIC is an apt reminder of how negatives can open the door to positives when you don't let life's obstacles grind you down.

THE NEW MUSIC follows the story of a classically trained pianist Adrian (Cillein Mc Evoy) who has a promising career ahead of him, all to be taken away after a Young Onset Parkinson's disease diagnosis. He runs away from the control of his up-tight family and finds a room in an apartment in Dublin with punk band members Will (Jack Fenton), David (Patrick O'Brien) and Jodie (Martina Babisova) known as The Cellmates, who are everything but up-tight. He bonds with them as their rebellious and punchy music provides an exciting distraction to his troubles and a sharp contrast to his previous life.

Wiritten and Directed by Chiara Viale and produced by Viale and Philip Kidd, the film was made the with support of Young Parkinson's Ireland.

CineEuropa said: " Chiara Viale's debut feature is a brave work, a little independent film with a big heart."

The Dublin Inquirer Said: "This is an energetic, blood and sweat kind of film, it's got something to say, there's attitude here."
