Loach making War of Independence film

Director Ken Loach is working on a film set during the Irish War of Independence and the Civil War in Co Cork, the BBC reports.

Loach says the film has relevance today, both in the portrayal of an army of occupation – which he says resonates with the war in Iraq – and in examining the legacy of the Treaty which ended the civil war and created the border.

"I think it’s about how important it was that Ireland shook free of the British hold and the extent to which the British went to keep control of Ireland – which I don’t think the British recognise." (BBC News)
