IFTA Screening - Metal Heart

When:Tuesday, June 25th

The Irish Film and Television Academy in association with Treasure Entertainment present a first-look screening of Hugh O’Conor’s ‘Metal Heart'.

The hilarious coming of age comedy-drama about family and growing up marks the directorial debut for prolific Irish actor Hugh O’Conor, starring Jordanne Jones, Leah McNamara, Moe Dunford, Seán Doyle and Aaron Heffernan.

‘Metal Heart’ tells the story of fraternal twin sisters Emma and Chantal who are worlds apart. Emma is self-conscious and unsure of which path to take in life - she dreams of starting a band (they have a pie-chart) with her best friend Gary, who secretly has a crush on her. Chantal, meanwhile, is beautiful, confident, and knows exactly where her life is headed. When their parents go away for the summer, their simmering sibling rivalry threatens to boil over, especially when the mysterious boy next door moves back in.

Hugh O’Conor and Jordanne Jones will participate in a Q&A after the screening.

Release Date: 28th July 2019
