Appreciating the Gael Linn Film Saoirse? (1961)

April 21, 2023 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Saourse? film showing

George Morrison’s sequel to Mise Éire, his acclaimed account of Irish history focussing on the lead up to the 1916 Rising and the War of Independence, Saoirse? deals with the events of that war and its aftermath. The film adopts a more subdued tone than its predecessor, a tone befitting the bloodshed of this period. What the film does share with Mise Éire, however, is its extensive use of archive footage, much of it salvaged from obscurity and neglect by Morrison to provide a moving image record of Irish society during one of its most turbulent and famous periods.

Irish language film, Saoirse?, depicts the tumultuous years from 1919-1922 which led to the formation of the Irish Free State and the partition of Ireland. There will be time for questions and answers following the film showing.
