The Mic Christopher Story

Winner of Audience Award at Irish Film Institute Documentary Festival 2019

HeyDay The Mic Christopher Story

- It's about life, love and second chances

This heartfelt story charts singer-songwriter Mic Christopher's humble beginnings busking on the streets of Dublin, his rise to rock star, the near-fatal accident that left him millimeters from death, through to his final year where he lead an entire generation of Irish musicians onto fame, success and new artistic highs.

Told through the eyes of those whose lives he touched - Oscar-winner Glen Hansard, writer/actor Sharon Horgan, Mike Scott of The Waterboys, Bronagh Gallagher, Josh Ritter, Lisa Hannigan, Rónán Ó'Snodaigh, Colm Mac Con Iomaire and many more.

This epic story of extraordinary music and friendship will both touch and inspire.
