Rebel Rossa ''Rebel Rossa'' A FEATURE DOCUMENTARY BY WILLIAMS ROSSA COLE, FEATURING ORIGINAL MUSIC BY JAMES FEARNLEY OF THE POGUES Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa was one of the most controversial figures in Irish history. He was a committed Irish Republican who saw his father die in the famine, endured tortuous years in English prisons and was exiled to the United States where he continued to relentlessly - and violently - campaign for Irish independence. His funeral in 1915 lit the fuse of the revolution and resulted in the Easter Rising of 1916. One hundred years later his American great grandsons journey to investigate his legacy and their relationship to a figure both notorious and highly revered. Filmed in the centenary year of O'Donovan Rossa's death, they find themselves not only observers of their great grandfathers' commemorations, but actual participants.
