On the centenary of Ireland's Easter Rising, '1916 - The Irish Rebellion' tells the dramatic story of the events that took place in Dublin during East Week 1916, when a small group of Irish rebels took on the might of the British Empire. Although defeated militarily, the men and women of the Easter Rising would wring a moral victory from the jaws of defeat and inspire countless freedom struggles throughout the world.
