Living the Revolution

2002, 52 minutes

We join Sinn Fein's controversial candidate Martin Ferris and party leader Gerry Adams on the run up to the Irish general election in 2002. Informal and honest we get a unique behind the scenes perspective on these controversial men and their motivations. We witness them deal with pre-election dramas including Ferris's arrest for alleged vigilante activities.

A Wildfire production for TV3 in association with Bord Scannán na hÉireann/Irish Film Board
