Rebel County

Harvest Films | 2006 | 52 mins

Director: Pat Collins  Producer: Pat Collins  Editor: Isobel Stephenson  Sound: John Brennan  Camera: Colm Hogan

Rebel County uses the shooting of the Ken Loach film The Wind that Shakes the Barley as a springboard from which to explore the real life events of The War of Independence in the South West of the country.

Rebel County features observational behind-the-scenes material of Ken Loach interacting with cast and crew, key ambush scenes, Black & Tan raids, behind the scenes historical discussions between Loach and cast members and includes clips of the completed film. The documentary strikes a creative and natural balance between the exploration of the film-making process and the real stories from that period.
