ICC Film Screening & Talk: Documentary Screening “The Road to Irish Independence” (Jan 13)

“IRISHMEN AND IRISHWOMEN:
In the name of God and of the dead generations from which she receives her old tradition of nationhood, Ireland, through us, summons her children to her flag and strikes for her freedom.”
-The Proclamation (24th April 1916, Easter Monday.)

Come join us to watch this award-winning documentary where Liam Neeson comprehensively narrates the dramatic path Irish revolutionaries walked
towards being freed from the rule of the British Empire.

This year marks the 100 year anniversary of the 1916 “Easter Rising” that triggered the beginning of the Irish independence struggle. Various events are being held all over the world to celebrate the 100th anniversary. You can feel the history of Ireland through this film on this momentous occasion.

After the screening, Hiroko Mikami, professor of Irish literature/theatre at the Faculty of International Research and Education, will also give a special talk.

Come embrace history with us! Don’t miss this amazing opportunity!
