Wildcard Distribution is an Irish film distributor established in early 2013 specialising in new and fresh approaches to distribution. has released the teaser trailer for one of our most anticipated Irish films of 2017, Frank Berry’s prison-drama Michael Inside.
Michael Inside which stars Dafhyd Flynn, Lalor Roddy, and Moe Dunford tells the story of Michael McCrea, an impressionable 18-year-old living with his grandfather Francis in a Dublin housing estate, who gets caught holding a bag of drugs for his friend’s older brother and is sentenced to three months in prison.
We are delighted to be working with Wildcard Distribution on the Irish release of Michael Inside, who have shown great passion for our film. Researched over eighteen months with former prisoners the film is an expression of many real-life experiences, and we very much look forward to Irish audiences seeing it.
Frank Berry, Director
