    April 18, 2013 · (3 years, 11 months) ago · by Dave Farrell · 1370 views


    Ireland on Sunday is the IFI''s monthly showcase for new Irish film. Producer Dave Farrell and Editor DaithiConnaughton will participate in a post screening Q&A. 

    Keith and Dave Farrell’s docudrama A Terrible Beauty centres on two linked events during the Irish Rebellion of 1916: the battles of Mount Street and North King Street which culminated in the massacre of 15 innocent young men and boys. Largely told from the perspective of the foot soldiers on both Irish and British sides, and innocent civilians caught in the middle, all characters are real and much of the dialogue is taken directly from accounts given by combatants on both sides, and the wives and mothers of those murdered.
