Currently in production in Northern Ireland, BBC’s Once Upon a Time in Belfast (working title) is the highly anticipated follow-up series to the critically acclaimed Once Upon a Time in Iraq, which explored the 2003 invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq.
The series team will convene at Docs Ireland to discuss the process of developing the project, including the research and casting process, intended creative approach, and the practicalities around structuring the narrative of such an expansive episodic piece of documentary filmmaking.
