Fíorscéal brings a new season of top-class international documentaries that continue to throw a sometimes disturbing or controversial light on issues which affect us environmentally, socially, politically and globally.  Among the first documentaries of the new season are:

A Question of Humanity   27.04.17 @ 10.55pm

A young Ugandan woman’s battle to save her people from Nodding Syndrome. The mysterious and deadly Nodding Syndrome has affected thousands of children in Northern Uganda, leaving them hovering in a zombie-like state between life and death. Angwech Collines saw her own childhood despair in the eyes of these children and was compelled to act. In a race against time, can she save the next generation of Uganda’s youth from this killer condition, in the face of bureaucracy, poverty, and superstition?


Circle of Poison   04.05.17 @ 10.55pm

A shocking investigation into the hypocrisy of US pesticide laws. When the US government bans a pesticide, deemed too harmful for the American people, you would imagine that to be the end of it. What you would not expect is it to then be exported freely aboard for profit. In recent years countless harmful pesticides have been spread around the world’s less-developed nations, causing immeasurable damage. Many are then imported back into the United States on infected foodstuffs, creating a terrible cycle of poison.


Inside a Volcano   11.05.17 @ 10.55pm

This is the unbelievable story of the golden generation of Icelandic football. An up close and personal insight into a team that made the world take notice by becoming the smallest nation ever to reach a major final in the biggest sport in the world. The documentary tells the story of a group of young boys growing up in Iceland with the unrealistic dream of playing for their nation in a big tournament one day. The story shows us footage from the team´s biggest stars when they were kids to the remarkable qualifying campaign of Euro 2016.
