In the optimism of the 1960’s people bought new homes in Springfield Park only to find themselves at the heart of a battle when the Troubles broke out. After a night of violence in 1971, six people were killed and Catholic and Protestant families left the last mixed street in West Belfast.


A Million Bricks is the story of a scattered community told by the people themselves and directed and produced by Frank Martin and Seamus Kelters, who lived there. 
They were ordinary people who saw their hopes realised, then dashed within the space of a decade. 


Where once stood a row of houses shared by Protestants and Catholics now stands Belfast’s biggest peace-line, a wall of a million bricks, separating them.

Did you know that Bernadette Devlin was once described by an opponent as “Fidel Castro in a mini skirt”? That she punched the Home Secretary in the Houses of Parliament the day after Bloody Sunday? That she was elected MP at 21?

Bernadette Devlin McAliskey has certainly had a tumultuous political career and her political journey continues to this day. Lelia Doolan’s documentary allows her personal and political story to unfold in this atmospheric and evocative film. Using archive footage and a series of interviews with Bernadette herself over a number of years, a complex and intricate picture evolves of a formidable figure of recent Irish politics.
