Black '47

3rd year history students travelled to the Irish Film Institute to see 'revenge-western' Black '47 this morning. Set in Connemara,  in the worst year of The Famine, the story tells of an Irish soldier who has deserted from the British army to wreak revenge on the regime he once served which has caused the death of all his family. 

The students were extremely lucky that the movie's director, Lance Daly, was on hand afterwards for a Q+A session. A most insightful experience.
