Once Upon a Time in Northern Ireland

Directed by British filmmaker James Bluemel, first-hand testimonies and carefully-selected archive footage are beautifully constructed into a series that is at once harrowing, humane, intelligent and heartfelt. With a stunning score from British composer Simon Russell, the docu-series was co-produced by Bristol-based KEO Films and Northern Ireland’s Walk On Air Films.



Twenty-five years after a peace agreement was reached, intimate and previously unheard testimonies are brought to light from the Troubles, as the civil war unfolds chronologically over five hour-long episodes.
