After watching the film Belfast, write a blog post on one of the following tasks:

  • Write a short film review. Include some information about the film and the devices it uses and give your own opinion on the film. Who would you recommend it to and why?
  • Do some research on the conflict in Northern Ireland and write an informative piece about the Troubles and the situation in Northern Ireland today. (tip: your new text book has a chapter on this)
  • Peace walls or peace lines are a series of barriers that separate Catholic republican and nationalist areas from Protestant loyalist and unionist neighbourhoods. The barricades were originally built during the Troubles, but there are still more than 60 barricades in the area. Do some research online about the role of the Peace Walls today. Find an example of a mural and its background and reflect on its political message.
