Per Delany, "They’re films I liked early, and they contributed to my own appreciation of science fiction, films and writing, and an appreciation of the cost of difference, and what I wanted to do with the movement of bodies in The Orchid." Delany and documentary filmmaker Fred Barney Taylor in person.

The images that have come to define the thirty-year conflict in Northern Ireland known as “the Troubles” have been primarily those of television and fiction: news reports and talking head docs, or gritty crime movies and human-interest dramas.
