Just So Director Scott Carthy Documents Young Derry Residents for The Face's 'Generation Peace'

The film follows the lives of young people who have grown up since the 1998 Good Friday agreement

Just So Director Scott Carthy Documents Young Derry Residents for The Face's 'Generation Peace'

After three decades of civil war, the 1998 Good Friday Agreement brought peace to Northern Ireland – a peace that the 2016 Brexit result threatened to undermine. With the region taking radical steps forward in other areas of life, Scott speaks to a generation of ‘peace babies’ leading the charge. 

Scott Carthy adds: ‘As I, and many other Irish like Jen Byrne from The Face, watched Brexit drag on it became obvious that there was a real lack of consideration and understanding by many as to the implications of its potential outcome on Northern Ireland. It felt like there was a real disconnect in England between Northern Ireland’s past and present and the tumultuous history between England and Ireland. We wanted to make a film hearing from the generation that grew up in peace, the generation that grew up since the Good Friday agreement, as Brexit poked the coals of a diminishing fire.’ 

Scott’s Bio

Scott’s intimate, observational style of directing makes the viewer feel that they are there in the moment. Whether it’s part of a New York subway dance crew in Litefeet or up close and personal with model of the moment Adwoa Aboah. Scott brings unique aspects of communities to screen in a visual style that captures the energy and culture of all walks of life.

His recent film for Jess Glynne displays a stylised and intimate documentary that presents the record-breaking, singer-songwriter as she’s never been seen before. Having become the first female solo artist in British music history to have 7 number one singles, Scott joined Jess on her first arena tour and followed her as she developed her much anticipated second album. 

Scott’s unique talents have seen him create work for brands such as Ethiad, Levis, Chivas, Tate Modern, Martini and Jameson’s and his Clarks Originals film, Kingston All-Stars, won a Lovie Award for Best Branded Entertainment. Find his reel here
