The Image You Missed

Irland, Frankreich, 2018
Dokumentarfilm

Darum geht's

In diesem einzigartigen Essay-Film greift Donal Foreman auf zuvor nie gesehenes Material aus drei Dekaden zurück, um die Geschichte der Konflikte in Nordirland zu erzählen. Dabei ist er auf der Suche nach dem Vater, den er kaum kannte: Dem irisch-amerikanischen Filmemacher Arthur MacCaig.

The Image You Missed Regie Donal Foreman
There is sorrow in this recognition, but—to the film’s immense credit—nothing like nostalgia. Instead, the film poses cinema itself as the instrument that, at once, links the dispersed members of a political movement, and serves as the thin thread that connects father to son, across time, and beyond death.

Eschewing easy conclusions in favor of infinite critique, the politics of the film are found, even more so than in Foreman’s conflicted admiration for McCaig and the nationalist movement, in its very approach to image-making and historical memory—a devastating performance of the inseparability of the personal, the political, and the aesthetic.

More than a mere homage, the film provides a meticulous and challenging comparison of two different ways of being a man, a citizen, and a filmmaker.
