lost lives

23 October, 2019, 8.15 p.m.

Based on the book Lost Lives, which records every single death since the beginning of the modern conflict known as the Troubles in Northern Ireland, this heartfelt documentary is a cinematic homage to the victims, from all sides. Powerfully narrated by famous Irish and Northern Irish actors, including Kenneth Branagh, Roma Downey and Stephen Rea, the film weaves archive footage with recordings of family and friends. A score performed by the Ulster Orchestra and striking cinematography complete this elegiac piece. The last entry in the book is Lyra McKee, a journalist who was fatally shot in 2019 – an essential reminder that peace can be a fragile process.

Followed by a recorded Q&A with special guests.
