News: 'The New Music' - A Film About Young Onset Parkinson's

The New Music - Film Parkinson's


Info: 'The New Music' follows the struggles of Adrian, a young classical musician with extraordinary talent, who discovers he has Young Onset Parkinson's, a rare form of Parkinson's Disease affecting sufferers under fifty. Despite this debilitating condition, Adrian( played by Dublin actor CillĂ©in Mc Evoy) joins a punk band as a keyboard player and rediscovers his life through music and love. 

Filming was completed at the end of 2017 and the production team have launched a crowd-funding campaign to reach out to the public to donate what they can in order to raise money for the post production expenses of the film- editing, sound, music, marketing and festival entries. 20% of all funds raised will go directly to Young Parkinson's Ireland in addition to all future income from the film. Young Parkinson's Ireland is heavily involved with the film itself, having consulted on the initial script and they will also have the opportunity to approve the final cut of the film.

Italian writer/director Chiara Viale was inspired to write the story after her father passed away having suffering from Multiple System Atrophy, a rare degenerative neurological disorder with symptoms similar to Parkinson's.

It is her aim that The New Music will help to dispel the stigma around Young Onset Parkinson's. It is believed that there may be as many as five hundred unaccounted for sufferers in Ireland.
