Christina Noble: In a House That Ceased To Be, follows the Irish humanitarian and children's rights activist, whose unwavering commitment and selfless efforts have seen her better the lives of countless children since 1989. Her drive stems from a childhood in Ireland fraught with poverty, loss and institutional abuse. Despite achieving so much in the face of adversity, Christina remains scarred by the memory of the children she was unable to save, her own brother and two sisters, who she was separated from at a very young age.
This powerful piece of film-making gives an unflinching portrayal of pain and betrayal, demonstrating Christina's struggle to forgive the country in which she and her siblings were born, raised and ultimately torn apart. A mesmerising meditation on the nature of good and evil, it celebrates the triumph of the human spirit but also depicts the tragedy and sacrifice that are too often ignored.
Hundreds of thousands have benefited from her daring and dedication but is it possible for Christina to put her own family back together after fifty-three years?
