OneTwoOneTwo full programme announced


The music documentary film festival at the Light House Cinema in Dublin has revealed its full line-up of awesome music docs showing October 3rd – 6th.

Check it out! The second annual OneTwoOneTwo music documentary film festival kicks off on October 3rd and features Mistaken For Strangers (The National documentary), Some Kind Of Monster (epic Metallica doc), This Is Spinal Tap, Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer, Dave Chappelle’s Block Party, Sing Me The Songs That Say I Love You: A Concert For Kate McGarrigle (Rufus and Martha Wainwright’s tribute to their mother), and Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me.

Mistaken For Strangers opens the festival on Thursday, October 3rd, with the Dublin premiere of the acclaimed documentary about The National showing across three screens. This movie is now sold out! 

Friday night is METAL NIGHT, as we pay homage to one of the greatest metal bands of all time, Metallica with the fascinating no-holds-barred examination of a band in turmoil with Some Kind Of Monster. How do you follow the greatest metal doc of all time? With the greatest mockumentary of all time, obviously, so we’re screening This Is Spinal Tap in all its spontaneously combusting glory. 

On Saturday, the band that shook the world is the subject of Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer, an amazing documentary that follows the all-female Russian punk band from inception to their criminal trial. Pussy Riot defied the conventions of their society and paid dearly for it, and showed that punk can still very much be political. Saturday night features the brilliant Michel Gondry-directed Dave Chappelle’s Block Party, an awesomely uplifting celebration of music, comedy and community featuring Kanye West, Mos Def, The Fugees, Common, The Roots, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott and loads more. 

On Sunday, our festival closes with two Irish premieres. The first is Sing Me The Songs That Say I Love You: A Concert For Kate McGarrigle about the inspirational crux of the Wainwright family as a host of astounding musicians gathered in New York to pay tribute to Kate McGarrigle. Rufus and Martha Wainwright, her children lead Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones, Antony Hegarty, Justin Vivian Bond and more in this heartwrenching and beautiful film. 

OneTwoOneTwo closes with the Irish premiere of one of the most anticipated music documentaries in recent years, Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me. As the band of a generation that never was, this doc has been lauded as the music film of the year, with The New Yorker calling it “a passionate tribute to its brilliant, beautiful music,” and NPR saying it has “the power to move even those who prefer Mozart or Lil Wayne.” Don’t miss it. 

All tickets are priced at €10, €8 concession, but because we know it will be IMPOSSIBLE not to want to see more than one film over the festival, we have a special offer of three films for just €22.50. This offer does not apply to the opening screening of Mistaken For Strangers.

OneTwoOneTwo was put together by friends Cillian Mc Donnell and Una Mullally in association with the Light House Cinema.

OneTwoOneTwo opening movie: Mistaken for Strangers


In 2010, the rock band The National released their fifth album, High Violet. After ten years as critical darlings, the band was finally enjoying wider recognition. As they were about to embark on the biggest tour of their career, lead singer Matt Berninger invited his younger brother, Tom, to be a part of their tour crew. A budding filmmaker and horror movie enthusiast, Tom brought along his camera to film the experience. 

MISTAKEN FOR STRANGERS follows the story of two brothers at very different moments in their lives. Approaching forty, Matt is just now beginning to experience life as a rock star. Before he is invited on tour, Tom, age 30, is still living at home in Cincinnati.

On tour, Tom struggles to keep up with his crew duties. He watches his older brother perform sold-out shows for screaming fans, and feels increasingly cut off from him. He doesn’t always understand the band’s success (he prefers heavy metal). He falls into bad habits, loses track of the film he is trying to make, and Matt starts to come down on him. 

After tour, Tom moves in with Matt and his wife, Carin, who put him up until he finishes the film. This proves difficult; Tom shot over 200 hours of footage. He’s scattered, overwhelmed and feeling lost. The film Tom finally produces is a hilarious and touching look at two very different brothers, and an odd but strangely moving portrait of a popular, nuanced band. 

Mistaken for Strangers opens OneTwoOneTwo in the Light House Cinema on Thursday, October 3rd at 8.30pm. Tickets are on sale now.
