About the film: 

Directed by Donal Foreman
Ireland | 1hr 14mins | 2017

The complexities of a father/son relationship are explored in this documentary from Irish director Donal Foreman (Out of Here). In it, Foreman grapples with the legacy of his estranged father, the late documentarian Arthur MacCaig, who gathered detailed archives during The Troubles in Northern Ireland, and contributions from others on their different experiences of nationalism.  Using over three decades of unseen footage, the film weaves a history of The North with the story of a son’s search to better know and understand his complicated father.

Director Donal Foreman will attend the screening.
