Abstract

A critically acclaimed short, televised film, Contact follows a platoon of British paratroopers patrolling the southern part of County Armagh, Northern Ireland in the 1980s. Often warding off invisible, enemy fire, the men travel throughout the countryside in silence. The film shows the fear, confusion, and professionalism of soldiers at war.
