A Silent War is a powerful collection of cinepoetry created whilst living through the pandemic. It began in 2020, when Ross Thompson invited other writers to record readings of these poems in their houses during the first lockdown.

Continuing with Ross’s spirit of generosity and collaboration, Northern Ireland Screen's Digital Film Archive continues to invite a range of creative practitioners to respond creatively to these poems, using archive and additional layers of sound and visual imagery. This event will include screenings of selected films from A Silent War, and sees Ross Thompson in conversation with some of the creative practitioners who created the films.

This is a free event. A £5 ticket is available as an optional donation option. Proceeds from this option will go towards Cruse Bereavement.
