BFC member Donal Foreman's second feature, a documentary essay film entitled The Image You Missed, will have its world premiere next week at the Rotterdam International Film Festival (IFFR). Tickets are on sale here. It will also have its Irish premiere at the Dublin International Film Festival on March 1st.

In the film, Foreman grapples with the legacy of his estranged father, the late American documentarian Arthur MacCaig, through MacCaig's decade-spanning archive of the conflict in Northern Ireland.

The film has already been highlighted in the Netherland's leading newspaper, NRC Handelsblad, as a "captivating essay film" and one of their top picks at IFFR.
