Abstract

Acclaimed documentarian Kenneth Griffith's film marking the 50th anniversary of the Easter Uprising, the seminal 1916 event that launched the Irish War of Independence. Nine veterans of the Irish Republican Army recall their awakening to Irish nationalism, commitment to independence, and personal experiences of the event and war. Its resonant message at onset of the Troubles led to the banning of the film.
