 in the breathtaking natural surroundings of the Cueva de los Verdes, “The Image You Missed – a movie co-produced by France, Ireland and the United States – is a compilation of images recorded by Arthur MacCaig, a young US man of Irish descent who ended up becoming a documentary maker for the IRA in the 1970s.
