The Life After: UK Premiere Screening

BBC Two

Virtual venue: BBC Tent

The Life After is a filmed poetic response to The Troubles in Northern Ireland. Five people who lost loved ones in violent acts tell us their stories, parts of which have been turned into verse by poet Nick Laird. Directors Brian Hill and Niamh Kennedy combine testimony with archive and specially filmed poetic sequences to create a striking picture of life in Northern Ireland during the Troubles. Although dealing in tragedy, the film offers hope through the resilience of the characters. Chaired by writer and broadcaster Francine Stock
The screening is followed by a Q&A with Brian Hill and Niamh Kennedy
