The European premiere of acclaimed Irish director Lenny Abrahamson's latest feature WHAT RICHARD DID will take place on September 30th as the closing film of the IFI's 20 Year Celebrations.

The Irish film which will receive its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next week and will be released in Ireland on October 5th has also been snapped up by London-based sales company Protagonist Pictures who will handle all territories except Ireland and the UK which will be handled by Element Pictures Distribution.

Written by Malcolm Campbell (Skins, Shameless) and starring Jack Reynor, Sam Keeley (The Other Side of Sleep), Róisín Murphy, Lorraine Pilkington (Human Traffic) and Lars Mikkelsen (The Killing), WHAT RICHARD DID tells the story of Richard Karlsen, a Dublin school leaver with the world at his feet who "does something that destroys it all and shatters the lives of the people closest to him".

The feature was produced by Dublin's Element Pictures with funding from Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board.

‘What Richard Did' will be released in Ireland on October 5th.
