Watch: The Siege of Jadotville

A film based on the true story of a battalion of Irish UN peacekeepers dispatched to the Congo during the 1960s. It's an incredible story that has been lost in the history books about the siege of a 150-strong Irish UN 'A Company' under Commander Patrick Quinlan (Jamie Dornan) by 3,000 Congolese troops led by French and Belgian mercenaries working for mining companies. The movie features a predominantly Irish cast, including Jason O'Mara and Sam Keeley, as well as Guillaume Canet, Mikael Persbrandt and Mark Strong, while it also marks the directorial debut of Richie Smyth.
