Bernadette: Notes on a Political Journey (2011)
This remarkable documentary, made over a nine year period, charts the story of Bernadette Devlin McAliskey’s political journey since her explosive entry into the public arena in the late 60’s. Combining archive footage with a series of intimate interviews conducted with Devlin McAliskey, director Lelia Doolan encapsulates the idiosyncrasies and rebelliousness which has fuelled her subject’s pivotal role at the heart of civil rights, feminism and socialism in Northern Ireland. The film equally offers a window into the everyday living conditions in Northern Ireland in the mid-20th Century through to the late 60’s and the mass popular struggles that emerged in this context –a crucial history for anyone pushing for radical alternatives today.
Producer/Director Lelia Doolan will introduce the film. A discussion will follow the screening.
Entry Free/ Donations Welcome
