On Easter Monday 1916, a small group of Irish rebels - including poets, teachers, actors, and workers, took on the might of the British Empire. Although defeated militarily, the men and women of the Easter Rising would soon win a moral victory with their actions leading to the creation of an independent Irish State and contributing to the eventual disintegration of the British Empire. They have inspired countless freedom struggles throughout the world - from Ireland to India.
Narrated by acclaimed actor and Irish native Liam Neeson, 1916: The Irish Rebellion commemorates this seminal event with a combination of rarely seen archival footage, new segments filmed on location worldwide, and interviews with leading international experts. The documentary also uncovers the untold story of the central role Irish Americans played in the lead-up to the rebellion that would change the course of Irish history.
