Treaty Doc 'An Conradh 1921' TG4 Premiere
07 Dec 2011 : By Ciara Drohan
Treaty
New TV documentary ‘An Conradh 1921’, which focuses on the signing of the 1921 Anglo-Irish Treaty, will air this Wednesday on TG4 at 9.30pm. The series was written and directed by Andrew Gallimore (In Sunshine or in Shadow, Troid Fhuilteach (A Bloody Canvas)) and commemorates the 90th anniversary of the signing of the Anglo Irish treaty and details the three days in December of the negotiations and the dramatic sequence of events that would follow.

‘An Conradh 1921’ will piece together the events from the period through real life accounts of the key players involved and the men and women who lived out the drama on the streets and villages of Ireland through recordings by voice actors. This will be inter-cut with newly discovered and never before seen archive footage and photographs.

Speaking about the documentary executive producer Morgan Bushe (Other Side of Sleep, The Runway) at Fastnet Films said, “Andrew Gallimore has done an incredible job. He’s managed to unearth a ream of archive footage which has never being seen before on Irish television; coupled with the deeply personal first hand accounts. ‘An Conradh 1921’ succeeds in adding a whole new dimension for audiences that might already have knowledge of this time while also in my opinion making the definitive film on this period for a first time viewer.”

The documentary was made with the support of TG4 and was photographed by Stephen Hart, with sound design by Avatar Post. It was edited by Eoin McDonagh (In Sunshine or In Shadow, Kiss for Jed Wood) and produced by Rory Dungan (I Hate Musicals; The Musical!, Passing).
