Stephen Burke – early works
This month we screen two early Northern Irish narratives by Stephen Burke, director of new feature Maze, which opens on September 22nd.
1960s Derry. Freda (Deirdre Mulloy), a teenage girl and child of a brief, illicit liaison between a Catholic woman (Ger Ryan) and a Protestant city councillor (Brian McGrath), tries to lead a normal life against the backdrop of the emerging civil rights movement.

Belfast, 1981. A French film crew visit the city to cover the story of Bobby Sands and the Hunger Strikes. They interview a Catholic and Protestant family, living within feet of each other, similar in every way but for their politics.
