The next in our series of BFI Film Academy Recommends events is a screening of the beautiful and heartfelt Lyra, directed by BAFTA-winning filmmaker Alison Millar, and presented in partnership with Docs Ireland. Alison will take part in a post-screening discussion, exploring her work as a director and producer.

Through a rich archive of audio recordings, field notes and interviews with those who knew her, Lyra tells the story of the internationally renowned Northern Irish investigative journalist Lyra McKee. The result is a complex picture of Northern Ireland’s political history, bringing into sharp focus the ways in which the 1998 Good Friday agreement - with its promised end to violence for future generations - has struggled to be fully realised.
