The film was launched in Derry and Belfast this summer and has been shown at the White Lady Art Gallery and the Fumbally Exchange, both in Dublin.Together in Pieces is described a gripping 25 minute documentary on the changing landscape of Northern Ireland.The world famous murals and political slogans that have taunted its communities for over 40 years are being slowly transformed by a graffiti revolution. From the intimidating sectarian graffiti that falsely represents the views of the communities they appear in, to the internationally renowned murals that depict the history of the region, the poignant question is raised: “What do we want to paint?”We learn about Linda Watson’s long struggle to change perceptions about her community both from within and without. Bill Rolston, Emeritus Professor at the University of Ulster and world expert on the sectarian murals in Belfast, talks about the changing landscape in Northern Ireland.Filmed in Derry and Belfast, from the international to the local, Together in Pieces features hard-hitting and in-depth interviews with Bill Rolston, Emeritus Professor of the University of Ulster and world expert on Belfast’s sectarian murals; International Graffiti Artist Man One from Los Angeles; London-based street artist Boyd Hill (Solo One); Michael Doherty of the Peace and Reconciliation Group; Donal O Doherty of Street Art company Urban Vizualz and many more people who are working away in the background with young people to change their perceptions and mindsets.SPECIAL GASYARD SCREENING FOR “TOGETHER IN PIECES” was last modified: September 17th, 2014 by stephenstephen Tags: cultureDerrygasyardnightpiecestogetherlast_img read more
