Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter considers the issues that face filmmakers working on stories set in Northern Ireland in the post-Troubles era. Topics include the use of genre, specifically the thriller, and questions of trauma and catharsis. A particular focus is on hunger strike narratives, including Hunger (Steve McQueen, 2008). It also provides a production background to filming in Northern Ireland. As in Chapter 5, it considers the use of melodrama as a narrative mode.
