The tangled and violent history of the Northern Irish Troubles acts as an evocative backdrop for Donal Foreman’s film about his relationship with his estranged father, the late American documentarian Arthur MacCaig. Foreman grapples with his father’s legacy through MacCaig’s extensive 30-year film archive of the conflict, describing his father as “an American in Paris making films about Ireland.” Two filmmakers born into different political moments with different political stances who shared little actual time together, but are bonded by a region, social struggle and filmmaking.
