‘Revolution in Colour’ for Clare screening

SHARE

On Good Friday the 30th of March, a special screening of Martin Dwan’s Revolution in Colour will take place at the Burren Storehouse Lisdoonvarna.

This film takes newsreel footage from the opening years of the 20th century to tell the story of the struggle for Independence in Ireland. And it goes one step further by presenting these moments from history in colour.

A painstaking process of colourisation was used to bring a fresh perspective to the footage of titans like Michael Collins and Patrick Pearse, and powerful moments of action and scenes of everyday life. The effect is to remove that sense of distance which can be created by older archive footage, making it feel like a mere step away from today.

This fascinating documentary of the early decades of the 20th century in Ireland showcases a piece of living history, and demands to be seen on the big screen.

Revolution in Colour premieres in Clare at the Burren Storehouse Lisdoonvarna on Good Friday starting at 8pm sharp.

Dr. Tomás Mac Conmara will be the guest speaker on the night and will set the context in Clare at this time before the screening. Tickets €5 available on the door. All welcome to attend. “
