This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement that ended three decades of conflict known as the Troubles and brought peace to Northern Ireland. In honor of the occasion, please join Queen’s University Belfast, the John Brademas Center of New York University, the Northern Ireland Bureau, Solas Nua and the Glucksman Ireland House for a special screening of the documentary The Agreement. The film examines the negotiations leading up to and the aftermath of the signing of the Agreement in April 1998 and the referendum on the terms of the settlement that followed six weeks later. It includes interviews with former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, Senator George Mitchell, former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and other key figures in the negotiations including Jonathan Powell, Sir Jeffrey Donaldson, Monica McWilliams, Lord Empey and David Trimble’s former advisor, David Kerr.

The documentary also puts a spotlight on the events that led John Hume and David Trimble to share the Nobel Peace Prize for their work in advocating solutions to end conflict. 

The Agreement has been produced by FinePoint Films for RTÉ in association with Queen’s and Northern Ireland Screen.
