Film: Patrick Scott – Golden Boy

Patrick Scott is considered to be the Godfather of Irish modern art.

Sé Merry Doyle’s documentary ‘Golden Boy’ tells of Scott’s extraordinary life. The film begins at the Hugh Lane Municipal Gallery who honoured Pat with a major retrospective of his life’s work.

The film features his great friend Seamus Heaney and the art critic Bruce Arnold. From his studio in Baggot Street Pat unveils his extraordinary life as an artist. There is a wonderful music score by Kieran Kennedy. The other stars to feature are his best friends, his cats!
