Pluralities - Nonfiction Film Conference

Cahal McLaughlin is chair of Film Studies at Queen's University Belfast, a documentary filmmaker, and the director of the Prisons Memory Archive. His latest films are We Were There (2014) on the role of women in the Maze and Long Kesh Prison, and We Never Give Up II (2012) on reparations in South Africa. His publications include Recording Memories from Political Conflict: a filmmakers journey (2010: Intellect).

Through an interactive discussion, McLaughlin will present his newest project Centre for Documentary Research as part of the Pluralities Nonfiction Conference. (Nov. 9 at 8:20 am).

#Pluralities will use nonfiction film to engage the humanities in nuanced dialogue. It will bring together a cosmopolitan group of thought leaders, creative thinkers and learning communities to participate in the same global exchange as documentary filmmakers. Pluralities will also offer far-reaching avenues for national and international nonfiction filmmakers and scholars to exhibit, examine and exchange their work in one platform. In addition, it will provide an umbrella for the various creative and scholarly pursuits that are housed at the Documentary Film Institute.
