2010, sectarian disturbance erupted when the Orange Order marched past the Crumlin Road interface during the Twelfth of July march (actually taking place on the 13th). The Fuse of Peace is a short documentary that discusses the riot that took place and the issues within both communities. Parading has historically been a divisive element in Belfast and The Fuse of Peace seeks to raise awareness of the damage riots like these have on community relations and the setbacks they can cause to a society that is meant to be moving forward.

The Fuse of peace is a film by Will Maloney. He wishes to thank Northern Visions, the Ardoyne Parades Dialogue Group, North and West Parades and Cultural Forum, Twaddell Woodvale Residents Association, Ardoyne Youth Providers Forum and the North Belfast News for their help and support.
