A documentary that opened many eyes in Ireland and England is making its way to U.S. film festivals and will also be screened in Manhattan in April. How to Defuse a Bomb: The Project Children Story chronicles NYPD bomb squad specialist and Irish immigrant Denis Mulcahy, who created Project Children to get Protestant and Catholics kids away from Northern Ireland’s troubles and over to the U.S. Over 20,000 children have participated in the program. The film will be screened at the Irish Arts Center in New York City on April 25, and Mulcahy will be interviewed afterwards.
