Revolution in Color - Film Club $5

The 90-minute film, scripted by Trinity College Dublin historian Eunan O'Halpin, and narrated by Downton Abbey's Alan Leech, includes footage of the the funeral of Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa, the aftermath of the Easter Rising, the Treaty negotiations and the shelling of the Four Courts which started the Civil War, and features historical figures such as Michael Collins, Patrick Pearse, Edward Carson, and John Redmond. The Irish Times reports that British Pathé had tired to make a similar film in 1935, but were stopped from doing so by the government under Eamon de Valera. At the time, Pathé had sent the government 43 reels of film, which were then confiscated. The colorized footage is amazing - really letting us see the events as they happened and not in some detached way.   $5.
