    Trade Centre' by Marcus Robinson. Belfast film-maker and artist Marcus Robinson has been effectively embedded at Ground Zero in New York since 2006, recording the rebirth of the World Trade Centre. His elegiac documentary pays homage to the working men and women rebuilding the mammoth Freedom Tower and salutes the unquenchable spirit of the Big Apple. This is the first time the 90 minute version of the BAFTA Award-winning

    movie, which went out on the History Channel in the US on 9.11 this year, has been shown in Ireland. Marcus Robinson makes a triumphant return to Belfast for the Homecoming Conference and will take part in a question and answer session after the screening. He will also speak at conference on Friday in Titanic Belfast — just yards from the Titanic Drawing Rooms where his father once worked. With thanks to the Moviehouse and Belfast Film Festival.
