Some of the Wild Geese will already be aware of this film having seen it on one of our recent U.S. screening tour dates, but for those who aren't you might be interested in this unique docudrama about the 1916 Easter Rising. You can view the trailer and some behind the scenes footage at…

Colin,

Two things: 1) I just read Robert A. Mosher's review of your latest film, "A Terrible Beauty". I look forward so seeing it.
I noticed that the writer, Keith Farrell, and the producer, David Farrell, share your last name. Any chance they are "family"? In any case, I am pleased to see that--FINALLY--the Irish story is being presented and in such a way and in such a format as to give a very large audience an opportunity to understand some, even a little, about the Irish struggle. Also, a film such as this might initiate and engender public support for Irish independence as in "26 +6 +1"!

2) Thanks very much for the notice of your screening of "A Terrible Beauty" at The Brattle Theater in Cambridge, MA on Wednesday, 10 September. That's brilliant! I think the title phrase comes from Yeats and was used by Leon Uris as well. I am an ardent student of Irish history, and I will plan to go with a few friends. I just worry about the lines and "if" myself and a few friends will get in as Harvard has a well subscribed Irish program of study so, I think the line for admission will be very long and The Brattle Theater--lovely and highly regarded as an "art and indie venue" is on the small side. Will you introduce the film?

All the best,
Niamh Ultaigh

Addendum: Ouch!,the typo! Of course the equation should read 26+6=1 but you know that, don't you? Don't we all?
