Event description

Description

This one-hour film documentary produced by Youth with a Mission Ireland director Jonny Clark and English film-maker Josh Eaves of Global Fire Creative uses stories of courage and compassion from the Troubles to make a powerful plea for peace and reconciliation.

The film’s title, Guardians of the Flame comes from a quote by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks: ‘Religion is like fire, and like fire it warms, but it also burns, and we are the guardians of the flame”.

Contributors to the film include Alan McBride whose wife and father-in-law died in the Shankill bombing, Eugene Reavey whose three brothers were killed in the Whitecross shootings, and Beryl Quigley whose husband was shot by the IRA.

Forgiveness, scandalous or otherwise, is a strong thread with contrasting angles evident.

The audience will have an opportunity to engage with a panel afterwards when we’ll try to shed some light on the role of forgiveness in post-conflict healing.
