The Image You Missed + Q&A
Institute of Contemporary Arts
The Image You Missed, Dir. Donal Foreman, Ireland, France, USA, 2018, 73 mins


In this moving, singular essay film, Donal Foreman draws on three decades of unique, never-before-seen archive, deftly weaving together a history of the Troubles in Northern Ireland with his own search for the father he barely knew, Irish-American political filmmaker Arthur MacCaig. Through forensic examination of MacCaig’s footage – including material from his seminal 1979 documentary The Patriot Game – Foreman comes to know his father anew, and in the process provokes a riveting exchange between two filmmakers born into different political moments. The result is a fascinating, candid portrait (and self-portrait) that collapses the boundary between the personal and the political.
