I AM PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE REBEL ROSSA (new title) WILL BE PREMIERING AT THE GALWAY FILM FLEADH ON JULY 7TH. It has been an incredible ride with much hard work to get it to this place in such a tight timeframe and such little funding - so I thank again everyone that helped along the way! There is only one screening scheduled and then a sneak peak screening at the Skibbereen Arts Festival on July 23rd. But keep spreading the word and requesting to see it as that will certainly help a wider distribution.
And, yes, if you can please find it in your heart to donate as I still need to find funds for finishing the mix, color, licensing, etc. etc. Thank you!!!
Please take a few minutes to meet the filmmaker and learn more about ROSSA IRISH REBEL! Editing is happening but we need your support in order to meet urgent deadlines. We appeal to you to be part of this project that will carry forward the story of ROSSA. Thank you!
PS - James Fearnley of the Pogues is composing music for the film as well as an original song based on Padraig Pearse's famous oration - "The fools, the fools, the fools!" - Amazing!
OUR SHOOT IN AUGUST WAS A GREAT SUCCESS. I AM CURRENTLY ORGANIZING THAT FOOTAGE AND BEGINNING THE EDIT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE WITH LIMITED RESOURCES. PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO THIS PROJECT IF YOU CAN!
ROSSA IRISH REBEL - THE FIRST TRAILER - Thanks for taking the time to view this first trailer for the project. It features O'Donovan Rossa biographer Shane Kenna and Irish historian Judith Campbell and highlights controversial parts of Rossa's life and contemporary issues in Ireland leading up to the 100 year anniversary of the Easter Rising. Thank you! WRC
