Topographies of Terror and Taste: The Changing Face of Cinematic Belfast

Martin McLoone

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    This essay explores the the way in which Belfast has traditionally been portrayed as a city of violence and sectarian strife. This is contrasted with some more recent films that have begun to reflect a more benign, consumerist Belfast that reflects the optimism of a post-conflict society.
