Description

Examining the legacy of the past and its enduring impact on Northern Ireland, Ulster Image details the advent of The Troubles and explores how depictions of the country have shifted over time. The film seeks to address misconceptions and reveal the true Ulster, as it is experienced by the majority of its inhabitants.
