Connecting Civil Rights

This short film encompasses interviews we conducted with Irish civil rights activists from the late 1960s and 1970s, who were calling for an end to discrimination in jobs, housing and many other aspects of life in the Northern Ireland of the time. Their interviews are interspersed with clips from our co-produced community play, ‘We’ll Walk Hand in Hand’, which took as its central theme ‘Civil Rights: then and Now’. 50 years after the original civil rights struggle in the north of Ireland, as our play process conveyed, many civil rights concerns remain.

The film will be shown as part of an exhibition taking place in the Linen Hall Library, Belfast, from July-August 2018.
