Hope hunt & the ascension into Lazarus

A car pulls up with electronic techno music blaring out of its speakers. A figure comes out of the boot: a woman in a tracksuit and a nylon jacket. She looks rebellious. Her dance is raw, fierce and magnetic. Hope Hunt & The Ascension into Lazarus radiates Belfast, with Oona Doherty capturing the essence of its working-class neighbourhoods and the invisible people who live there.
