ESSAY The civil war in Northern Ireland as the backdrop for a father-son story – and for a reflection on political cinema. For more than 30 years, the American Arthur MacCaig was the film chronicler of the Troubles – and is father of the Irish director Donal Foreman. Using MacCaig's and his own works as a starting point, the son attempts to get closer to the father, who back in the day prioritized the war to the detriment of his family. Foreman links private biographies with national history to form an intelligent, visually impressive essay about the spirit of committed cinema and its authors' political and artistic positions.
