The Danger of Safety

Posted by

The Danger of SafetyIRA members Herbert & Maud Mitchell experience the consequences brought by the infamous Public Safety Acts in 1930’s Ireland, as parliamentarian Timothy Quill opposes those responsible for its introduction. In this film we explore how ‘freedom’ can mean different things to different people and how protection can feel threatening in itself.
Based on ‘The Man with the Long Hair: The Spirit of Freedom in a Woman’s Story’, written by Maud Mitchell.
