Play. The films of Duncan Campbell


This session presents the work of the Irish artist Duncan Campbell, which centred on analysing the documentary as a form of fiction and portraying youth and freedom movements in the individual’s struggle against the State. In Falls Burns… he shows half a century of conflicts between Catholics and Protestants, using amateur images of Belfast. Bernadette is a portrait of Bernadette Devlin, a socialist activist in Northern Ireland who, at the age of 21, became the first woman member of the House of Commons. O Joan, No… is a tribute to Beckett.
