and that's why I'm leaving (Landscapes and Stories)

Nancy Nicol

2000, 16:00 minutes, colour, English/Tagalog w subtitles


A seventeen year old Catholic youth recounts incidents of harassment by the Royal Ulster Constabulary and the British Army, against a backdrop of a chilling hidden camera observation of British Army and RUC patrols of the Catholic community of the Bogside in Derry. And that's why I'm leaving, is an indictment of 30 years of repressive measures by Great Britain against the people of Northern Ireland.

This is the first video in a four part series entitled Landscapes and Stories, shot in Northern Ireland in the 1990's and early 2000's.

Dedicated to the peoples of Northern Ireland and the desire for an end to the violence.
