Time 19:00 21:00
Location Aarhus University, Kasernen, building 1584 room 124

The Image You Missed is a personal documentary exploring the power of images to capture absolute truths about political conflicts, using an assemblage of found footage shot over 30 years of violent conflict in Northern Ireland.

Join Centre for Irish Studies in Aarhus and Donal Foreman, director of The Image You Missed, to learn about the film, it’s making and methodology and to think about how we may use found footage and archival images to explore transnational, intergenerational memories of conflict and struggle.

There will be a particular focus on film as a documentary art and the role of images in dealing with conflict in Northern Ireland.

In this special workshop Foreman will present clips from some of the 21 versions of his essay film The Image You Missed, constructed over a two year period out of over 100 hours of archival material, and discuss the challenges of balancing the film's diverse formal and narrative elements.

He will also share excerpts from his notes and outlines of the film and break down a scene from the completed film.

Date and Venue: Tuesday 23th. April 19:00 –21:00 building 1584, room 124
