AKU LOUHIMIES:

REBELLION MINI-SERIES (episodes 1 & 2)

WEDNESDAY 5 OCT. AT 18:00

Rebellion

2016 | 52 min per episode

 

Rebellion is a five part commemorative drama about the birth of modern Ireland. The story begins with the outbreak of World War I. As expectations of a short and glorious campaign are dashed, social stability is eroded and Irish nationalism comes to the fore. The tumultuous events that follow are seen through the eyes of a group of fictional characters from Dublin, Belfast and London as they play vital and conflicting roles in the narrative of Ireland's independence.

GEORGE MORRISON:

MISE ÉIRE

THURSDAY 6 OCT AT 17:00

SATURDAY 8 OCT AT 19:00

SUNDAY 9 OCT AT 18:00

Mise Éire

1959 | 88 min | Black and white documentary | Irish language, English subtitles

 
Mise Éire draws almost exclusively on contemporaneous newspapers, newsreels and actuality footage from the early years of Ireland’s revolutionary period to present a history of that turbulence. The era under director George Morrison’s microscope is divided into three segments and spans from the late years of the nineteenth century through to the 1916 Rising and concluding with Sinn Fein’s electoral victory in 1918, a triumph that would be a precursor to revolution. The film’s approach to this history is avowedly patriotic, celebrating as heroes and martyrs those who involved themselves in the radical nationalist movement. The film is notable for the invaluable work of archival salvage undertaken by Morrisson in identifying and preserving moving images in Irish and British collections to create this feature-length montage.

1916 THE IRISH REBELLION

THURSDAY 6 OCT AT 19:00

SATURDAY 8 OCT AT 17:00

1916 The Irish rebellion

2016 | 86 min | Narrator: Liam Neeson

                  
On Easter Monday 1916, a small group of Irish rebels took on the might of the British Empire. Although defeated militarily, the men and women of the Easter Rising would soon win a moral victory - with their actions leading to the creation of an independent Irish state and contributing to the eventual disintegration of the British Empire. They have inspired countless freedom struggles throughout the world - from Ireland to India.
