Why did the ancient people of Ireland abandon worship of the Earth for worship of the Sky? And why, thousands of years later, did they abandon Paganism for Christianity?

  • A Terrible Beauty 1916-2016 is an ongoing project which has grown out of the TG4 docudrama A Terrible Beauty/Áille an Uafáis which dealt with events during the 1916 Easter Rising from a fresh and unbiased perspective. It is a "Living History" project that will consist of a digital portal for the stories of the participants and living relative of those involved in the Rising in Dublin, including those who led the fight for Irish freedom, those who opposed it, and those - both the famous and unknown - who were caught up in its wake. It will chronicle and preserve vital individual stories as a resource for all.

  • YOU won't have seen a better film about the 1916 Rising this Easter, and won't see one any other Easter, than A Terrible Beauty. Pat Stacey

  • ‘What a remarkable film, 'A Terrible Beauty'. The Irish language with sub-titles, the even-handed portrayal of both sides, the documentary style with the personal stories and the archive film footage and the close-up horror of death. It was gripping - without the 'Hollywood' style 'glamorising' of war.’ Ann Towey, Irish Diaspora Foundation.

  • A Terrible Beauty Directed by Keith Farrell A brilliantly shot, big budget, drama-documentary about the men and women of the Easter Rising in Dublin in 1916 told from both sides.

  • A Terrible Beauty is a measured and very impressive docu-drama. The unobtrusive English narration is by Peter Coonan (Fran the Man from Love/Hate), but a particularly effective way of telling the story is to have the actors, in character, tell the tales of the people they portray: the testimonies are taken from a wide range of sources and give a voice to the vivid human drama. Indeed, the dramatic reconstructions in A terrible beauty set the bar high for the documentaries that are bound to follow over the next few years.
