The Drummer And The Keeper

There will be a post-screening discussion on the topics raised in the film
The Drummer & The Keeper tells the story of the unlikely friendship formed between two young men; Gabriel, a reckless young drummer with bipolar disorder, who revels in rejecting society’s rules and Christopher, a 17 year old with Asperger’s Syndrome, who yearns to fit in.

This heart warming story shows the strength of the human bond in the face of adversity. Written and directed by Nick Kelly, whose short film SHOE was shortlisted for an Academy Award, The Drummer & The Keeper was produced by Kate McColgan for Calico Pictures (FROM THE DARK), with support from the Irish Film Board.
