MARKING THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY SINCE BRITISH TROOPS ARRIVED ON THE STREETS OF NORTHERN IRELAND
Lost Lives is a major cinematic film inspired by the book of the same name, and marks the 50th Anniversary of the start of the conflict in Northern Ireland. Written over seven years by five journalists, it is a book that, uniquely, records the circumstances of every single death in the Northern Irish ‘Troubles.’ There are over 3700 entries in the book. Over 3700 lost lives. Featuring high-end cinematography, an orchestral score and readings by an ensemble cast of Irish actors, including Kenneth Branagh, Brendan Gleeson, and Bríd Brennan, the film is a requiem. A reminder that war is hell.
