Two brothers find themselves on opposite sides of a civil war in this film that has the IRA in its backdrop and a Palme d'Or in its credits.

As part of its monthly screening program of multi-lingual films for its members, the Hyderabad Film Club is screening a UK/Ireland/Italy/Spain/German film, The Wind That Shakes The Barley, directed by Ken Loach.

Set in Cork, Ireland, in 1920, the flims features Damien abandoning a career as a doctor after seeing a friend of his murdered by a British soldier, and joins his brother Teddy in an Irish Republican Army unit in order to defeat the occupying British forces.

After a violent struggle, the two sides agree a treaty to end the conflict. However, civil war erupts and families and friendships are stretched to the limit, and Damien and Teddy find themselves on opposing sides as Damien views the treaty as a sell-out that fails to bring all of Ireland under Irish control.

British director Ken Loach became the 59th winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes with this emotional drama about the Irish Civil War of the 1920s, and the film features superb performances from a young Irish cast.
