A Film by Arthur Mac Caig
Rich in emotional images, often tender but more often terrifying the patriot game tells the story of the long and bitter battle for the 6 counties of the north of Ireland. The films introduction covers Irelands history from colonization to the territory’s division in 1922.
The Patriot Game then details the events of the decade that began in 1968. Through powerful portraits as the infamous “Bloody Sunday”
The film show the IRA at work – much of it filmed clandestinely – as they argue their cause.
Thorough and thoughtful …. Mac Caig’s film by dissecting the situation so coolly, helps emphasize, the bitterness and the confrontations. Regardless of how one may feel about politics it is a worthy and well made documentary.
