There’s a film about KNEECAP in the works

Words: Dylan Murphy

The Belfast trio shared news on Twitter today about a new flick that follows their story.

A new development initiative that supports feature films in a language other than English created by UK-based filmmakers has shortlisted a new film KNEECAP that follows the story of the Belfast rap trio.

The Mother Tongues Award is backed by UK distributor Curzon and French sales agent Charades it shortlists 10 films from 112 entries with all the selected filmmakers attending a workshop and a panel interview for the award of £10,000.

Kneecap, the Irish-language project from Rich Peppiatt has been described as “half fiction, half KNEECAP’s story”. It has been written in development Trevor Birney of Fine Point Films who produced the likes of Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence In The House Of God.

As it stands the film would need funding to be completed.

The news comes after the release of KNEECAP’s single ‘MAM.
