Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Silent Grace, the debut feature from director Maeve Murphy, is based on actual events. In the early 1980s, a new inmate (Cathleen Bradley) is thrown into prison with a group of female IRA insurgents led by Orla Brady). Although the newcomer has been put there to destabalize the group, they convert her and begin the "dirty" protests, which involves the inmates refusing to clean themselves. Silent Grace was screened at the Hamptons Film Festival.
