Monday night saw the local premiere of Maurice Sweeney’s docu-drama based on the life and testimony of ex-IRA volunteer Dolours Price. Sweeney attended the event with Producer Ed Maloney to introduce the film and take part in a post screening Q&A.
The screening was packed to capacity, some of those participating in the Q&A challenged Maloney on his involvement in the controversial Boston College Tapes, from which source material for the documentary had originated. (Listen to full unedited Q&A on link below)
Dramatic re-inactiments and an interview Maloney conducted with Dolours Price on camera are cut with archive to produce a compelling and ultimately tragic story.
I, Dolours opens in Movie House Belfast in the coming weeks.
