Love vs. Honor: The Irish myth of Diarmuid's betrayal
Gráinne, princess of Tara and bride-to-be, was furious. She had thought she was betrothed to a young soldier, bold and brilliant enough to be her equal. Yet it soon became clear she was expected to marry Fionn, a warrior far past his prime. Not willing to suffer this insult, Gráinne decided that before the wedding she would exact her revenge. Iseult Gillespie shares the Irish myth of Fionn's fury. [Directed by Efa Blosse-Mason, narrated by Jack Cutmore-Scott, music by Stephen LaRosa].
