In 2016 Ireland looks back on the events of 1916, as they mark the first Centenary of the Easter Rising - an important occurrence in Irish modern day history. During Easter Week of that year, an uprising was carried out, led by fifteen men whose overall goal was the Ireland's independence from British rule.
This film relates the events of Easter Week in 1916, particularly in terms of the Battle of Mount Street Bridge and Ned Daly's Four Courts Garrison. The film recounts the events from three differing perspectives. This film also speaks to the stories of civilians and others caught in the middle of the fighting. Who Dares To Speak of Easter Week
This film was recovered from the Australian Film and Sound archives and would have been what Irish people living in Australia would have viewed after the events of Easter 1916. This is a unique opportunity to view a film that has not been screened publicly in more than 90 years. Irish Destiny
This is a film that was created by Isaac Epple and discovered in archives in the 1990's after being lost for some time. It tells the story of a man in the IRA who tries to go to Dublin to warn his fellows of a planned raid on a secret IRA meeting but who is captured by the British.
This event is free, however booking is essential via Eventbrite.
