Young Offenders film debut

Maria Herlihy

A film which was shot in some of the most iconic locations around Cork city and the Wild Atlantic Way last summer will make its debut on Saturday morning at the Gate Cinema in North Main Street.

'The Young Offenders' was inspired by Ireland's biggest cocaine seizure of €440 million off the coast of Cork.

The Young Offenders follows two Cork inner-city teenagers, Conor and Jock, as they embark on a 160km road trip on stolen bikes in the hopes of finding an unrecovered bale of coke.

The film is directed by first-time feature writer/director Peter Foott. He is no stranger to comedy as he is an award-winning writer/director on the 'Republic of Telly' who also directed The Rubberbandits 'Horse Outside' video.

The Young Offenders will be shown at 11am sharp.
