Synopsis...

Decades before Michael Moore, Irish-born journalist Peter Lennon and legendary French 'Nouvelle Vague' director of photography Raoul Coutard managed to get a society to reveal itself on cameraÂ… In 'Rocky Road to Dublin' (1968), Ireland's patriotic sportsmen, priests, censors and 'brain-washed' children unwittingly convey the truth about a repressed, suppressed and massively censored Republic. Lennon and Coutard expose the hypocrisy of church, politics and state through a series of seemingly 'innocent' interviews. Unsurprisingly, after one screening in a Dublin cinema in 1968, it was suppressed for more than three decades -- never released in Ireland nor ever shown on Irish television. In 'The Making of Rocky Road,' Raoul Coutard breaks his silence by coming out of retirement to tell his story of the making of this revolutionary film: the "la haine" of its day, set against the social and political backdrop of Dublin in the sixties. It features previously unreleased footage of Lennon confronting Godard and Truffaut in a furious debate surrounding the shutting down of Cannes '68, as well as the Paris Demonstrations that occurred surrounding the screening of the film at the Sorbonne in full revolutionary swing.
