Mise Éire features original film of the momentous events surrounding Easter Week 1916, footage of Dublin during the Rising and of the main Leaders of the Rebellion – Clark, Connolly and Pearse.
The film uses newsreel and contemporary photographs to tell the story of events surrounding the Easter Rising of 1916. The musical score was composed by the great Seán O Riada’s and brought the images to life and instilled them with emotion. It also ensured that what might have otherwise been a minority-interest documentary became, in fact, one of the most widely-acclaimed and appreciated events in Irish film history.
The title track, Mise Éire, installs a tremendous feeling of national pride and is one of the world’s most recognised pieces of Irish music. Mise Éire is one of the most important pieces of Irish music of the twentieth century.
Mise Éire contains unrivalled archive materials and is often featured in festival programs and commemorative events. The DVD presents living history and is accompanied by an explanatory booklet together with extensive additional film material. – All Regions DVD
