Patrick Bergin and Maeve Murphy talk 'Silent Grace'

TV3 Group continues to support the Irish film industry with the TV premiere of ‘Silent Grace’ this Saturday 24th June on be3 at 9pm.  

Directed by the award-winning Maeve Murphy, Silent Grace is the untold story of the women prisoners in Armagh Prison during the 1980 Prison Protests and 1st Hunger Strike for political status.

In this emotive film, Aine a young tear away criminal is thrown into the same cell as Eileen, a high ranking Republican prisoner and leader.

At first, both are at odds. But soon friendship begins to grow and Eileen helps save Aine’s sanity. Eileen then embarks on a hunger strike and Aine risks all to support her life.

Starring Patrick Bergin and Orla Brady, Silent Grace firmly places women back in the narrative of the 1980s and makes compelling viewing

Star Patrick Bergin and Director Maeve Murphy joined us on the AM couch this morning to talk about the process of making the film
