Date:Mar,25,2021 Time:7:00 PM

Dr. Tony Tracy from Huston School of Film & Digital Media NUIG,  will be in conversation live with Donal Foreman about his film ‘The Image You Missed’ 


In addition to being a multi-award winner Donal Foreman is Ireland’s Young Filmmaker of the Year 2003. In The Image You Missed his second feature film, Donal explores his relationship with his estranged father, Arthur MacCraig (Patriot Games) by presenting his work as a young filmmaker against the documentation of the Troubles in Northern Ireland by his father. This personal discourse between filmmakers, and between father and son, plunges into the political struggle for a united Ireland. This reveals both mens’ characters, positioned as they are in different political moments. The Image You Missed is a statement on the power of the moving image and seeks to locate the people behind the camera. 


The Image You Missed will be available on Fresh’s online festival portal from Tuesday 23rd
