Schocking documental! The footages are crude and incredible! I think this film is justice. It is justice because it shows the British and Northern Ireland brutality and violence that the media didn't broadcasted (Pro british). It is justice because of the exposure of colonial dynamics. Justice was filmed!
Excellent. Damning portrayal of the British government and their role in the violence.
We are currently in the middle of the Brexit madness. If you wondered what the issue with the backstop is, watch this. It’s imperative to avoid the risk of returning to this kind of shocking, destructive madness again.
Powerful stuff. It highlights the oppressive and ill-organized regime of occupation by the British, and the footage is often raw and violent. It’s clearly only showing one side of the story, but it clarified many things that I didn’t know about, particularly about why there were so many bombings.
I learned so much about the Irish conflict after watching this documentary. It was very well presented, and the raw footage from the streets of Northern Ireland really left a strong impression on me of the suffering of the Irish people.
Devastating documentary on the Irish struggle against British colonialism and neo-colonialism. With IRA as its main focus it opts mainly for footage from the recurring clashes in Derry and elsewhere; it captures the raw fury and anger in the street clashes. Remarkable shots of everyday-life folk in noble contempt of the British paratroopers add to the testimonials and to the serenely patriotic ballads of defiance.
This is a very interesting film. I saw lots of scenes from my childhood. But it needs to be seen for what it is - a crude propaganda film for the Provisional republicans. The reduction of the issues to the simplicity of an ‘anti-imperialist’ war is just as deceiving and divisive as a loyalist propaganda film would be. Eventually protagonists on both sides sat in government together. So the killing was for what?
A very partisan account of the Troubles, but there is no disguising that Belfast and Derry during the 60s and 70s were warzones, with barricades and bodies in the streets, homes being raided and firebomb attacks, irrespective of whether you chose to call the IRA guerillas or terrorists. As Nth Ireland faces the possibility of a Hard Brexit, this is a reminder of what things used to be like for the minority peoples.
