Phil Lynott / Watch the Trailer for the upcoming film ‘Songs While I’m Away’

Eagle Rock Films have today, on Phil Lynott’s 71st birthday, shared the trailer for Emer Reynold’s keenly anticipated film ‘Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away’.

The film is a feature length documentary of the story of a young black boy from working class 1950’s Dublin who went on to became Ireland’s greatest Rock Star.

Told extensively through the words of Phil himself, the focus is on some of his most iconic songs and we learn more about Philip: The father, the husband, the friend, the son, the rock icon, the poet and the dreamer.

With the current COVID-19 situation, there is no release date announced, but we expect it to be in the cinemas this October. Keep an eye on

The film is produced by Alan Maher and John Wallace for Cowtown Pictures and Peter Worsley for Eagle Rock Films and directed by Emer Reynolds and is a Globe Production in association with Fís Éireann/ Screen Ireland.
