RTÉ One to Broadcast ‘A Song for Dad’

San Francisco Irish Film Festival director and Emmy award-winning filmmaker Niall McKay will have his personal documentary, A Song For Dad (also known as The Bass Player), broadcast on RTÉ One on Tuesday August 4th, 2009 at 10.20 pm.

A Song For Dad explores Niall’s relationship with his Jazz musician father, Jim, who in the 1970s raised his two young sons on his own in Dublin. Scored by Jim’s jazz music, this film questions what it means to be a son, a husband and a father.
