SOFT BOY FOREVER
SHORT DOCUMENTARY, 2019
"A film about Soft Boy Records, the Dublin rap collective flipping hip-hop's braggadocio on its head within Ireland's growing underground music scene.
The film documents the group working out of bedrooms and makeshift studios, their music covering topics from the Repeal the 8th Movement, gentrification in Dublin and the pressure on Irish men to live up to the traditional idea of masculinity. Soft Boy Forever explores the mentality that has brought them together: not to harden up against the issues they face in a modern Ireland, but to ‘stay soft.’ They are the future of Irish music and this is Dublin today.
The documentary features some of the most exciting young Irish music talent at the moment, including: Kojaque, Kean Kavanagh, Luka Palm, Gaptoof, Brièn, Matt Finnegan, Five to Two, Henry Earnest, Wastefellow, jar jar jr.
