Five Stone Of Lead

Documentary, 5’ (2016)
dir: Jonny & Jono

Role: Producer

On the west coast of Ireland, kids don’t dream about winning the world cup. They dream about being championship jockeys, but with Ireland still in the grip of recession, there are less horses for kids to ride and less opportunities. This is the story of a 12 year old jockey called Dylan who is tiny, even for a jockey. Since stepping up a level he has to compete against older, stronger jockeys with more experience. At the Glenbeigh Races, one of the biggest events in the grassroots horse racing calendar, Dylan has the chance to make a name for himself.
