I Dolours

New Decade are delighted to announce that their new feature documentary, “I, Dolours” will receive its world premiere in the International Spectrum Strand of the 2018 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival on Saturday 28th April.

“I, Dolours” presents one woman’s story of life and death in the IRA. In 2009, Dolours Price, militant IRA activist, hunger striker and vocal opponent of the peace process gave an interview on condition that it not be broadcast in her lifetime. For the first time her shocking story can be told, entirely in her own words. Dolours was a ruthless terrorist but also a charismatic, loving mother, sister, friend. She was passionate, fragile, dogmatic, tortured.

Apart from the insight into the IRA and the descent into hell of Northern Ireland this film offers a rare glimpse into the pathway to radicalisation of an intelligent young woman — the motivation and excitement leading to violence and ultimately despair.  It is a story which is more relevant today than ever.

The documentary is produced by Nuala Cunningham and Ed Moloney for New Decade TV, directed by Maurice Sweeney, and is supported by the Irish Film Board, the Broadcasting Authority of IrelandRTÉ and received funding through the Section 481 government tax incentive scheme.
