Easter Rising: Voice of a Rebel

Step into one man’s memories of a moment that changed Irish history forever: the 1916 Easter Rising.

Step into one man’s memories of a moment that changed Irish history forever: the 1916 Easter Rising. Willie McNeive was 19 at the time, a fervent believer in Irish independence from Britain. So strong was his belief he became a participant in the Easter Rising. Directed by Oscar Raby, this VR experience is built on McNeive’s eyewitness account – a recording of which lay undiscovered for decades. A uniquely personal insight into this key moment of 20th-century history, Easter Rising: Voice of a Rebel offers an unrivalled journey into the memories of an ordinary man who was swept up into an extraordinary event.
