The Flats has just won the Pull Focus Award for Irish documentary features at the Docs Ireland festival!

The Pull Focus jury was deeply moved by this caring and collaborative portrayal of a community living the long shadow of violence while finding new forms of agency, expression and healing. It is an unforgettable, distinctively crafted film that sheds light on the inner dimensions of conflict, moving fluidly across the boundaries between past and present, personal and political, reality and imagination.”

Congratulations to Alessandra Celesia, as well as the residents of New Lodge (Belfast) who took part in the film and who were present at the screening! Not to mention the whole crew, as well as the Belgian, Irish and Northern-Irish co-producers.
