Áille An Uafáis

'A Terrible Beauty' aired tonight (Easter Monday) on Ireland's TG4, the Irish language television channel. Looks very interesting - I especially like the idea that history is most always viewed "from the top down." This film has up-ended the stories of the larger-than-life historic figures, in favor of that of the everyman (or woman).

As was pointed out in a recent post on Facebook, it "will be available on [the] online player for another 35 days after it airs." I had no luck viewing it in realtime, on air - perhaps the online player will handle an archived airing better. Let us know if you have any luck with this.

Read some more about the philosophy behind the making of the film here.
