Born and Reared explores contemporary Northern Ireland through the lives of four men living in the aftermath of violent conflict. In Northern Ireland today communities struggle to come to terms with the horrors and sacrifices of the past. Four men, of different ages and political persuasions, face a future defined by hope rather than regret. For their first feature documentary, filmmakers Henrietta Norton and Dan Dennison spent over a year with the men in and around their homes
and explored what happened to the identities of those men, whose lives had been so defined by conflict, when the Troubles ceased.
