2013 dir. Keith Farrell, this is a feature length docudrama, the first film to tell the story of the 1916 Easter Rising from three different perspectives, showing the human cost of the fighting on all sides. Using the postwar writings of men and women who were there, it tells the little -known stories of the ordinary
people involved in the Rising; Irish Volunteers, British soldiers and the innocent civilians caught in the middle. It focuses on the two most ferocious battles that took place during Easter week, the battles of Mount Street Bridge and North King Street, culminating in the massacre of fifteen young men and boys.
