YouTube – Rocky Road To Dublin Peter Lennon Documentary

Peter Lennon's 1967 documentary that was effectively banned for decades from RTE. An angry exposé of the stifling de facto theocracy then in place, it competed at Cannes in 1968 but was denied a prize when Godard and Truffaut's protest led to the festival being suspended. Godard's regular director of photography Raoul Coutard shot the film. Lennon was also a close friend of Samuel Beckett.
