Screen Seven – The Journey

20th November - 8:00 pm

Nick Hamm’s The Journey is a speculative what-if drama about a vital and mysterious aspect of the Northern Ireland peace process: the extraordinary rapprochement between two old enemies – the DUP’s Ian Paisley and Sinn Féin’s Martin McGuinness.

The film imagines that, halfway through the peace negotiations, Ian Paisley had to make a long car journey to get to his 50th wedding anniversary party and for reasons of diplomatic protocol, McGuinness would have to join him. This was the literal and figurative journey during which the ice would break.

Since the film’s premiere at Venice last year, McGuinness has died, there is political instability, and Brexit threatens to disturb a hard-won peace accord. So this film really is more relevant than ever.

Dir: Nick Hammi, UK, France, 1hr 34min. PG-13.

Stars:Timothy Spall, Colm Meaney, John Hurt

This film is presented as part of the Leeds Gathering Festival, a celebration of Irish and Celtic music and arts which is now entering its 13th year. For more information on the festival please contact the Irish Arts Foundation on info@irisharts.org.uk
