the choices we made: Bystanding & Conflict in Northern Ireland is a filmed collection of six true stories about individuals wrestling with how to behave and act when confronted with sectarianism, violence and prejudice.
The stories range over a 30 year period (1972 – 2002) and offer a fresh take on the options available for people during the Northern Ireland Troubles and post–ceasefire period.
