Second Chance Cinema and the Black Box present a season of films from Northern Ireland made during and/or about the Troubles. We want to showcase some of the weird, wonderful and insightful films made from the 60s to the 90s that shed some light on complicated times.

Sunday 29th July — 25 Bloody Years (1994)
3pm // Black Box Green Room // £4
A series of films made by the BBC to commemorate 25 years of the Troubles — these films deal with the obvious, and not so obvious, ramifications of the conflict.

Monday 27th August — Hidden Agenda, Dir. Ken Loach (1990)
7.30pm // Black Box Main Room // £5/3
