During the shooting of Ken Loach’s The Wind that Shakes the Barley (2006), filmmaker Pat Collins (Silence, Song of Granite) took this opportunity to explore the events of the War of Independence in the south-west of Ireland, whilst also documenting the filmmaking process. Featuring behind-the-scenes footage of cast and crew, the filming of key scenes and historical discussions between Loach and his cast, this rarely screened documentary balances real stories from the era with the filmic recreation of the period.
