It is 20 years since the Good Friday Agreement signalled the end of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, but what does it take for a war to really end? Hatred doesn’t disappear. Paramilitary groups don’t just disband. Filmed over five years, Sinéad O’Shea’s uncompromising documentary examines the legacy of conflict and violence in the country. Her focus is the O’Donnell family, and the story of a Derry mother who made her drug-addicted teenage son face his punishment at the hands of dissident Republican paramilitaries. A fascinating, disturbing film that couldn’t be more timely.
