Mairéad Farrell – An Unfinished Conversation (2014)
In 1988, Mairéad Farrell was shot dead by the SAS in Gibraltar along with two other unarmed members of the IRA. Due to her youth, her gender and her stature within the IRA, Farrell was quickly subsumed into the pantheon of Irish republican martyrs. But behind the mythologizing and demonization of the time, there was also a real person who was prepared to kill and die for her beliefs. This documentary is a conscious act of memory as historian Briona Nic Dhiarmada (co-producer) revisits her memories in an attempt to investigate and make sense of Mairéad’s life and death.
