    Abstract

    Working closely with the survivors group, Ballymoney WAVE, the CMR produced a series of six 5-minute films, Unheard Voices, on those who have lost someone or been injured during the Troubles. They include an RUC officer, a son killed in a sectarian shooting, a brother blown up by the IRA, a sister killed by a police agent, and a young man permanently disabled.PhD student, Jolene Mairs, and Senior Lecturer, Cahal McLaughlin, worked on the films. McLaughlin commented, ‘While policy makers address the difficult tasks of public acknowledgement and truth recovery from our contested past, these short films gently work their way into your thoughts by asking you to listen to the voices that are often not heard’.
