:The Image You Missed
Ireland/France/USA/UK, 2018, 73 min
Drawing on over 30 years of unique and never-seen-before imagery, The Image You Missed is an experimental essay film that weaves together a history of the Northern Irish Troubles with the story of a son's search for his father. In the process, the film creates a candid encounter between two filmmakers born into different political moments, revealing their contrasting experiences of Irish nationalism, the role of images in social struggle, and the competing claims of personal and political responsibility.
