Anzacs and the Rising Anzacs and the Rising


Anzacs and the Rising will be a new documentary film examining the role of Australian soldiers in Dublin during the Easter Rising as well as the aftermath and implications for Australia.

Ba thrua le duine ar bith ár gcás, mar ní raibh ábhar agóide ar bith againne féin i gcoinne na gcíréibeoirí" – An Saighdiúir Singil George Edward Davis, saighdiúir Anzac i mBaile Átha Cliath, an Cháisc 1916 Scannán faisnéise is ea 'Anzacs and the Rising' ina scrúdófar ról na saighdiúirí Astrálacha i mBaile Átha Cliath le linn Éirí Amach na Cásca agus ina dhiaidh, agus na himpleachtaí don Astráil.

The documentary will shine a light on a controversial aspect of the historical ties between Ireland and Australia. While the role of Irish soldiers fighting in WWI has received increasing attention over recent years, the legacy of the Anzacs has long been a cornerstone of Australia’s foundation myth. ‘Anzacs and the Rising’ will explore the connections between the contrasting paths to nationhood of Ireland and Australia. The film will include new interviews as well as relevant material sourced from film and still archives.

The Consulate General of Ireland in Sydney is pleased to be able to support the film-makers in producing an initial short trailer to attract further funding for the project.

Cuirfear léargas ar fáil sa chlár faisnéise ar ghné chonspóideach den cheangal staire idir Éire agus an Astráil. Cé go bhfuil aird níos mó á díriú le blianta beaga anuas ar ról na saighdiúirí Éireannacha a bhí ag troid sa Chéad Chogadh Domhanda, tá oidhreacht na saighdiúirí Anzac ina bunchloch de mhiotas bunaidh na hAstráile le fada an lá. In 'Anzacs and the Rising', déanfar iniúchadh ar na naisc idir na cosáin éagsúla i dtreo na saoirse a ghlac Éire agus an Astráil. Beidh agallaimh nua le feiceáil sa scannán, chomh maith le hábhar cuí ó chartlanna scannán agus grianghraf.

Tá áthas ar Ard-Chonsalacht na hÉireann i Sydney a bheith in ann tacú leis na scannánóirí agus blaisín gearr á léiriú acu d'fhonn cistiú breise a mhealladh i gcomhair an tionscadail.
