Dolours Price, militant IRA activist, hunger striker and dissident Republican, gave a filmed interview two years before she died, on the condition that it would not be broadcast in her lifetime. The result is a cinematic yet intimate and complex portrait, in which her story is told in full and entirely in her own words for the first time.
I, Dolours takes us deep inside the IRA, charting one woman’s journey from passionate idealist into disillusioned cynic, haunted by the memories of the terrible things she did for a cause she once so strongly believed in but for which she believes she was ultimately betrayed. From director Maurice Sweeney, fascinating, moving and at times deeply disturbing – this is her story.
