Betty Williams Contagious Courage
1 x 90'
This is the story of a young mother living in Northern Ireland fifty years ago, as her country teetered on the brink of civil war. The film tells the tale of a quiet revolution, requiring tremendous courage, that began when three little children were killed. Hundreds of thousands of people — mainly women — rose up to demand that their country change, and then took the concrete action necessary to create that change, themselves. With never-before-seen footage and behind the scenes interviews, ""BettyWilliams: Contagious Courage"" shows how average people can overcome their fear, and how one person can make a difference in a violent and unpredictable world.
