Tracing the life of Phil Lynott, lead singer of the legendary Irish rock group Thin Lizzy, multi-award-winning documentarian Emer Reynolds' (THE FARTHEST) SONGS FOR WHILE I'M AWAY reveals how a young Black boy from working-class 1950s Dublin became Ireland's greatest rock star and created some of the world's most iconic and extraordinary rock songs. A songwriter, poet and icon, Lynott's rise from humble beginnings to sold-out stadiums was spectacular and unprecedented.
