'Jadotville' Director Richie Smyth Talks About The Movie

Richie Smyth’s picture finally tells the true story of the Irish UN soldiers who fought in the Congo during the 1960 Katanga disturbances. “The story has been forgotten about,” he says with great passion. “There were 150 Irish guys against 3,000 Belgian and French mercenaries. They were being led by this guy called Pat Quinlan, played by Jamie Dornan in the film. He is a smart clever man. He’s an unsung hero. They are all unsung heroes.”
