Description

What does it take to be an artist in Northern Ireland? This revealing documentary invites us into the studios and thoughts of 13 artists as they reflect on the impact ‘the Troubles’ has on their lives and their art. Through painting, sculpture and performance they each find their own way to respond to the situation they find themselves in. Footage of Odd Man Out, preachers, politicians, and a heady soundtrack combine with the artist’s voices sparking a kaleidoscope of ideas.

Notes

Those taking part include Rita Duffy, Jack Pakenham, Ross Wilson, Gerard Devlin and Colin McGookin.
