presented by Sian Ní Muiri

It’s 2016, and in the midst of vicious austerity, emigration, and a housing crisis, the young people of Dublin are becoming increasingly disenfranchised with the state of the nation. From their base in the autonomous St Enda’s squat, a secret revolutionary organisation of women and men plan an insurrection that will transform the city, and challenge the survival of the 32nd Dáil.  An ambitious act of fictional class warfare and dubious historical revisionism, 16 and Rising asks viewers to consider whether their society is dystopian enough, yet, for revolution.
