Outcasts by Choice is a documentary about Belfast punk legends The Outcasts, who formed in 1977 and who were managed by Terri Hooley and part of his Good Vibrations label. The film follows the band from the early days in Belfast, to their dissolution in 1984. Then they re-formed in 2011 for a 50th Birthday Party – and they have been touring all over Europe ever since.
The documentary has been screened across Europe and in the US, and has been described as “magnificent” (BBC), “compelling” (Irish Film Institute), “a fascinating story, brilliantly told” (Hot Press) and “a scintillating period of Irish music history” (Film Ireland).
This is the second feature documentary to be directed by the father-daughter team, Paul and Kate McCarroll – their first film, The Last of the Name, is about a Donegal story-teller who died 60 years ago.
