FILMS ABOUT revolution, liberation, and the desire for peoples to be free will be screened at the Féile Scannán na Réabhlóide/Films Concerning Revolution 2016 festival in Connemara on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The programme marks the 1916 Rising centenary through Mise Éire (1959) and A Terrible Beauty (2013); will screen the classic Battle of Algiers (1966) which portrays the rising of Algerians against their French colonizers; the visually stunning Cuban/Russian co-production Soy Cuba (1964) which restages the Cuban people's uprising against the Baptista's dictatorship; and October (1928) which deals with the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution in Russia.
