BORN AND REARED
A story of four men in Northern Ireland living in the aftermath of a conflict that ended 18 years ago.
About the film
‘Born and Reared’ tells the stories of four men living in Northern Ireland today in the aftermath of a conflict. The film captures, through these four stories, the identity of a place and the men who live there. Told from a contemporary perspective for the first time since the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in Northern Ireland in 1998.
“This is a sensitive observation of what it was like growing up in the troubles, or being a part of them. It captures the regrets and the fears of thoughtful people, to this day. The concerns for the future are powerful. It deserves a wide audience”.
– Alastair Stewart OBE, ITV News
“If there was ever a film that should be watched to show the reality of growing up in Northern Ireland, this is it. No frills, no sanitisation, but rather honesty and reality nestled between characteristic Northern grit, humour and sadness. An emotional watch, but an important one. Born and Reared will answer some questions, but it will also more importantly leave you soul searching for personal and collective solutions. A must watch.”
– Máiría Cahill, Senator, Seanad Éireann
