In the Name of Peace : John Hume in America

4th April - 8:00 pm

Inspired by Martin Luther King, rising from the riot-torn streets of Northern Ireland to enlist American Presidents from Carter to Clinton, this is the story of the extraordinary work of Nobel Prize-winner John Hume to harness and leverage US support to help to secure peace in Ireland.

Narrated by Liam Neeson and scored by Bill Whelan, the film includes interviews with President Bill Clinton, President Jimmy Carter, many US Senators and Congressmen, as well as Irish leaders and British Prime Ministers Tony Blair and John Major.

At a time of political instability, this is a timely film examining steady leadership and international co-operation. This film is particularly relevant in April 2018, in the context of the 20th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement and recent developments on Brexit.

Dir: Maurice Fitzpatrick,  2017,  90 PG. With Liam Neeson (narrator), Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, U2’s Bono, John Major, Tony Blair.

In collaboration with Irish Arts Foundation, Irish Film London presents In the Name of Peace: John Hume in America, now on tour across the UK, including a series of screenings and Q&As with the film’s director Maurice Fitzpatrick. Leeds marks the beginning of this tour, with future stops to include the Manchester Irish World Heritage Centre and the Birmingham Irish Centre.
