Arthur MacCaig spent thirty years documenting the Troubles in Northern Ireland, leaving behind an archive of searing footage. In The Image You Missed, his estranged son, filmmaker Donal Foreman, recovers this material to reflect on the personal and political conflicts that came between them, and the commitment to filmmaking that brings them together after his death. Foreman’s poignant, brilliantly edited essay film raises difficult questions about the nature of family, representation, and activism both then and now.

Due to unforeseen conflicts, Donal Foreman will not be able to appear for this event.
