Irish Empire" Winstar Entertainment is one you might want to look at It =
was filmed and produced by the BBC for Northern Ireland with financial =
support from the Irish government for the Irish Film Industry. It has 5 =
vols and tells the story of the Irish who stayed behind as well the those =
who immigrated, and their struggle to maintain their Irish identity and =
culture. It was reviewed in the July/August 2001 issue of Video Librarian =
p. 30. About $59 for 5 tapes or 2 disc DVD. Sounds like a fun project.

I'm highlighting Ireland and Irish heritage for SFPL's weekly film series
in March. I'd appreciate suggestions, especially of documentaries relevant
to our theme. Thanks!
