Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa was one of the most controversial figures in Irish history.  A committed Republican, he created the concept of bombing campaigns against England in the 1800’s.  His funeral in 1915 lit the fuse to revolution resulting in the rebellion of Easter 1916.  Today he is still revered in Republican circles.  Banished as an exile to the United States he continued to relentlessly campaign for Irish independence becoming an influential figure in Irish America.   One hundred years after his death his great grandsons investigate Rossa’s legacy and their relationship to their infamous relative.  Directed by Williams Rossa Cole, this journey explores Irish American identity as descendents of one of the most notorious and revered figures in Irish history.  Filmed in the centenary year of O’Donovan Rossa’s death, the grandsons find themselves not only observers of their relative’s commemorations, but actual participants. With original music composed by James Fearnley of the Pogues.
