Our Boys

Director: Cathal Black

A telling docu-dramatisation of the role of the Christian Brothers in Irish education, made before ‘Official Ireland’ was ready for it.
‘Apart from the narrative outline, the film uses archive material and interviews, interwoven with ‘story’, to reflect a flavour of Irish Catholicism and catholic education – Christian Brothers style. I hoped, with this style of presentation, to understand the years of conditioning process which have gone into making me, Irish men, Christian Brothers, what we are.’ – Cathal Black, December 1981.
