Q&A with Barry Ward, who attended the screening of Stephen Burke’s Maze.
Maze is based on the true story of the 1983 mass break out of 38 IRA prisoners from the HP Maze high-security prison. As Larry Marley, the chief architect of the escape, schemes his way towards this feat, he meets prison warder, Gordon Close.
Initially they are confirmed enemies, born on opposite side of the Northern Ireland’s political divide. But when Harry realizes that Gordon may be useful for his escape plan, a slow seduction begins. What follows is an intense and intriguing drama during which an unlikely relationship is forged between two adversaries that will have far reaching consequences for both of them.
