The Wind that Shakes the Barley

2006


1920: Oppressed by the Black and Tans, an idealistic young Irishman joins the Republicans. Conflicts arise within the Republicans once the Anglo-Irish treaty of 1921 comes into effect.

Powerful look at the events which shaped 90 years worth of conflict in Ireland from the Republican point of view.
