FREE SCREENINGS.


The 1916 Easter Rising marked Ireland’s first step to independence from the British Empire and in turn inspired the search for freedom amongst other colonies around the world, including here in South Africa.


April 24th marks 100 years to the day since the beginning of the Rising on Easter Monday in Ireland and to mark this event, the Embassy of Ireland to the Republic of South Africa together with the Irish South Africa Association present screenings of 1916 -The Irish Rebellion


1916 –The Irish Rebellion is a documentary produced by the University of Notre Dame, USA.  Narrated by Irish Film Star, Liam Neeson, this landmark documentary tells the dramatic story of the events that took place in Dublin during Easter Week 1916, when a small group of Irish rebels took on the might of the British Empire. The documentary features a combination of rarely seen archival footage, new segments filmed on location worldwide, and interviews with leading international experts. 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 including in South Africa. 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.
