Scope and Content Note

Director: George Morrison. An account of the Irish uprising of 1916 with some contemporary footage to create a sense of the results of the rebellion. The film is largely composed of the archival footage used in director George Morrison's 1959 feature Mise Eire. It was distributed internationally with a script to be read by local television presenters in their own language. (Description taken from The Real Ireland: The Evolution of Ireland in Documentary Film, by Harvey O'Brien, page 297)
