About The Event

Film screening of ‘Exodus’; produced by Open Reel Productions, this documentary highlights the all too often overlooked story of how for almost 40 years, Protestants in their thousands fled their homes on the west bank of the river Foyle after having endured murders, beatings and sectarian intimidation.

Attendees are encouraged, after the screening, to tell their story and to take part in a discussion with the Screening Violence Project. Screening Violence is a four year research and documentary filmmaking project sponsored by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council. The project is based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, St Andrews and Ulster Universities, and works with co-investigators and partners in Algeria, Argentina, Colombia and Indonesia. Screening Violence is an innovative engagement with communities that have experienced prolonged and entrenched violence of different kinds. It aims to achieve understanding of how social imaginaries shape civil conflicts and transitions to peace.
