Neutral Ground

 

Synopsis

When the fear of being killed keeps you from riding your bike into a Catholic neighbourhood - when your mom’s face has been shattered by Protestant thugs - does a month away in Canada make a difference? Neutral Ground tries to answer those questions with a candid look at the Belfast Children’s Vacation Project.  Each July since 1988, New Brunswick families have hosted Catholic and Protestant 11 and 12 year-olds from Northern Ireland hoping to give them a month of respite from the violence and hatred of their segregated communities.
