ART OF CONFLICT:
THE MURALS OF NORTHERN IRELAND

Out of the heart of a violently divided region rose a unique form of expression that has given voice to two groups of people on opposing sides of a centuries old conflict. Art of Conflict: The Murals of Northern Ireland examines how the street art of murals tells the story of Northern Ireland's history and the violent Troubles. It further explores the impact, purpose, and future of these murals.

Filmed in Northern Ireland, the documentary provides interviews with local muralists, political figures, noted mural historians, art community members, and people who live and work in the region. The documentary is produced and narrated by Vince Vaughn.
