I, Dolours - IFTA Screening

When: Tuesday, 28th August
Venue: Lighthouse Cinema, 6:30pm

IFTA would like to invite Academy Members to a screening of Maurice Sweeney's I, Dolours

I, DOLOURS is a cinematic yet intimate and complex portrait of Dolours Price, militant IRA activist, hunger striker and vocal opponent of the peace process who two years before she died gave a filmed interview on condition that it would not be broadcast in her lifetime. Now for the first time her story can be told in full and entirely in her own words. This shocking film brings us deep inside the IRA and charts one woman’s journey from passionate idealist into disillusioned cynic, haunted by the memories of the terrible things she did for a cause she once so strongly believed in, she killed for it but, for which she believes was ultimately betrayed.

I, DOLOURS is directed by Maurice Sweeney and produced by Nuala Cunnigham and Ed Moloney with backing from Screen Ireland.
