AFTER FILM DISCUSSION WITH ARNIE HOLLAND, CEO OF LIGHTYEAR ENTERTAINMENT

Based on a true story, MAZE charts how IRA inmate Larry Marley becomes chief architect of the largest prison escape in Europe since World War II.   Up against him is the most state-of-the art and secure prison in all of Europe.   Under this surface is a subtle, intelligent, and hopeful drama about how two enemies must learn to live in a shared, but contested land.   As film director Stephen Burke notes, “there is always a way out of the maze of conflict, if you choose to find it.”

“When you add in the tip-top tension created by the legendary break itself, not to mention the verisimilitude of shooting in a recently decommissioned prison, you end up with a small film with an impressive impact.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“You will be riveted to your seat in what is a refreshingly authentic film, which has not one false note.” – Paddy Kehoe, RTE (Ireland)
