Irish Film Institute -GOOD VIBRATIONS


Director: Lisa Barros D’Sa, Glenn Leyburn

UK/Ireland, 2012, Biography/Drama/Music, 103min

This fun and energetic film reconstructs the violent, deeply divided Belfast of the late 1970s and early 1980s through the career of the idealistic Terri Hooley (Richard Dormer), who opened a record shop called Good Vibrations selling rock, folk and country music to
express his belief in the redemptive power of music. He then went on to discover punk and publicise it as the sound that would unite rebellious, non-sectarian youth in Ulster, promoting it on his own label and ultimately receiving the blessing of John Peel and Joe Strummer.
