“While so much has been written about Frederick Douglass, this film is a refreshingly original look at a largely unknown part of his life — his extraordinary experience in Ireland. Aside from revealing a piece of history long obscured, the film gives us a fascinating glimpse into the relations between Irish and African-Americans.” Howard Zinn 2009

The Camel Productions documentary tells the story of Frederick Douglass and his escape from slavery, leading to refuge in Ireland on the eve of the Great Famine. The film focuses on the powerful influence Ireland had on him as a young man and explores the turbulent relationship between African Americans and Irish Americans. The relationship is exposed as a complex and tragic sequence of events culminating in the bloodiest riot in American history. This transatlantic story covers the race issue and is as relevant today as it was when Douglass escaped to Ireland. Directed by John J Doherty.
