Lost Lives is a major cinematic film inspired by the book of the same name. Written over seven years by five journalists, it is a book that, uniquely, records the circumstances of every single death in a conflict - the Northern Irish 'Troubles.' There are over 3700 entries in the book. Over 3700 lost lives.
Joint directors and producers Dermot Lavery and Michael Hewitt commented, "Our film is not a documentary but a filmic response to the book. It is a film that weaves together high end cinematography, archive film, a commissioned score performed by the Ulster Orchestra as well as a number of extracts from the book, read by the very best of our acting talent. For us it is a cinematic event that addresses the past - but looks to the future."
Lost Lives will receive its World Premiere at the BFI London Film Festival on 10 October, followed by a Q&A with filmmakers and narrators. This exclusive Q&A content from the World Premiere, will be featured as part of the UK event screenings on 23 October.
