“An Irish The Night Of, packed into a tension-racked 90 mins, in which Dafhyd Flynn proves every bit as revelatory as Riz Ahmed.”

Competition Entry
World Premiere

Dafhyd Flynn (I Used to Live Here) plays Michael McCrea, an impressionable eighteen-year-old who lives with his grandfather Francis (Lalor Roddy) in a Dublin housing estate, where he is caught holding a bag of drugs for his friend’s older brother, and sentenced to three months in prison. Researched and workshopped with former prisoners from the Irish Prison Service’s Pathways Programme, Michael Inside is an expression of many real-life experiences. The film takes a realistic look at the circumstances that lead to Michael’s conviction, his time in prison, and how prison affects his thinking and behaviour.
