'1916: The Irish Rebellion’ screening

17 March, 7pm

National Film and Sound Archive, Canberra

The Embassy is delighted to work with the National Film and Sound Archive to bring this screening of Pat Collins and Ruan Magan’s documentary to Canberra. With narration by Liam Neeson, the film tells the dramatic story of the events that took place in Dublin during Easter Week 1916, and is presented just hours after the documentary’s premiere in Ireland.

A collaboration between Notre Dame University and the Government of Ireland, the documentary tells the story of the 1916 Easter Rising in a comprehensive way and, for the first time, places these events in their proper historical, political and cultural context as the precursor to an independent Irish state and the disintegration of colonial empires worldwide.

This is a ticketed event. Bookings can be made online
