Fifty-two years since the commencement of Northern Ireland’s Troubles, Barbed Wire Love presents intimate tales from those who stayed, those who left and those who passed through. Sisters and brothers, those who danced at raves, those who had good intentions and those who did not. Chance encounters, intimate first-person cinema and the unreliability of history and biography create space for wry humour and tiny ecstasies.

With a stop off in Eden, Co. Antrim, Simon Aeppli leads us on a wander through a tactile and reflective decade long filmmaking practice that suggests artist John Smith’s maxim that “If you look hard enough all meanings can be found or produced close to home”.

Employing personal and subjective forms of documentary, Simon’s filmmaking manifests itself through an effortless hybrid of photography, note taking and chance encounters. This screening and talk will give Simon’s perspective on filmmaking around place and memory that incorporates a particularly Northern Irish accent and voice.

Curated by Myrid Carten and Peter Taylor.
