A Terrible Beauty

Buy Tickets

Special Premiere Screening!

Co-presented with The Irish Film Festival, Boston

(2013) dir Keith Farrell w/Hugh O’Conor, Owen McDonnell, Rick Burn [97 min; DCP]
The center of a multi-media project that documents the events of Ireland’s 1916 Easter Rising, A TERRIBLE BEAUTY is a 90 minute feature docudrama which takes a unique look at the events of that fateful week. Focusing on the two most ferocious battles at Mount Street and North King Street, the film uses the first hand accounts of the Irish Volunteers, British Soldiers and innocent civilians caught up in the fighting to tell the stories of the ordinary people who took part in the Rising.
