Breaking Out
Following its Irish theatrical release in November, the critically acclaimed documentary Breaking Out will release on digital platforms in Ireland and the UK from January 10.

Breaking Out tells the remarkable story of Cork born singer-songwriter Fergus O’Farrell, the charismatic voice of Interference, one of the most compelling and influential bands to emerge from the Irish music scene in the 1990’s.  

Filmed over ten years by director Michael McCormack, Breaking Out takes us on an intimate and inspiring journey into the heart and soul of the late Fergus, who was best known for his timeless song “Gold,” which featured in the soundtrack to Once, the Oscar winning film and multi-Tony-award-winning musical.

Despite being diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at a young age, Fergus’ unique talent and love for life inspired a generation of songwriters even as his own was slipping away. Close friend and Oscar-winner Glen Hansard was one of those songwriters and never forgot that voice In one of the many incredible moments in Breaking Out, he performs the ultimate duet as Fergus' greatest gift was failing. 

Winner of the 2021 George Morrison Feature Documentary IFTA and Best Irish Documentary at the Galway Film Fleadh 2019, Breaking Out will be available on iTunes, Apple TV, Google Play, Sky Store, Amazon Prime Video, Virgin Media Ireland, Volta and IFI@Home from January 10.

Directed by Michael McCormack and produced by Michael McCormack and Aideen O’Sullivan, Breaking Out is a Silver Moonbeam Film Production, in association with Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland.

Breaking Out will release on Digital platforms on Monday, January 10.
