Ireland on Sunday is the IFI’s monthly showcase for new Irish film.
This month’s event features Keith and Dave Farrell’s docudrama A Terrible Beauty, which will screen on Sunday, 21st April 2013 at 1pm.
Producer Dave Farrell 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 culminating in the massacre of fifteen innocent young men and boys.Our story is largely told from the perspective of the foot soldier on both sides and the innocent civilian 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. It is a very emotionally charged drama with actors speaking to camera intercut with powerful battle scenes. This technique brings the audience to the centre of the unfolding events adding to the tension.
Tickets are available now from the IFI Box Office on 01 679 3477 or online at www.ifi.ie
