83 Min | Canada, Ireland and Scotland | 2016 | English Language | Directed and Written by Michael McNamara, Created by Jay Baruchel and Eoin O’Callaghan
Celtic Soul follows Canadian actor and funny man Jay Baruchel on an epic road trip through Canada, Ireland and Scotland with his new friend, well-known Irish soccer journalist Eoin O’Callaghan. It’s a story that spans 200 years of colorful history and that will take the duo eastward from Montreal to Westport, Ireland – where Jay’s ancestors set sail for Canada, like so many others – and finally Glasgow, where Jay will fulfill a lifelong dream: to watch a match at Celtic Park, one of the wildest and most hallowed grounds in world football.
Closing night party, presented in partnership with Venezia FC and Herrick!
