Recording Memories from Political Violence (Book)
A Film-maker's Journey
This book combines written and audiovisual texts to describe and analyse the use of documentary filmmaking in recording experiences of political conflict. McLaughlin draws on the diverse fields of film and cultural studies in this informed, instructive contribution to documentary filmmaking and post-conflict studies.
Cahal McLaughlin is a senior lecturer at the School of Media, Film and Journalism at the University of Ulster. He is also a documentary filmmaker whose recent projects include Inside Stories: Memories of the Maze and Long Kesh Prison and We Never Give Up.
A book about memory, trust, and an invaluable historical recording. It would be a disservice ... if the memories and voices in these films didn’t attract as wide an audience as possible.
A good example of how research and practice can walk hand in hand. ... Very well written.
