Directed by BAFTA-winning filmmaker Alison Millar, Lyra is a beautiful and heartfelt film about the life and death of the internationally renowned Northern Irish investigative journalist Lyra McKee.

Through a rich archive of audio recordings, field notes and interviews with those who knew her, Lyra tells the story of a life fearlessly committed to truth and justice for forgotten crimes. 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.

It has been an amazing year for Irish film at QFT, with the top three film spots on our box office chart being occupied by films from the island of Ireland. To celebrate this remarkable achievement, we are bringing back seven of our favourite Irish films from 2022 so you can experience the joy one more time. View the season here.
