BERNADETTE by Duncan Campbell. 2008. 37 min.
An ode to the hypnotizing power of Bernadette Devlin, an Irish revolutionary and fierce defender of civil rights. In a breathtaking assemblage of interviews and found footage, the young firebrand’s call for justice blazes, still relevant today.
KEEP IT A SECRET by Sean Duggan. 2021. 61 min.
Tracing parallels between the beaches of Rockaway and those of the Irish coast, Keep It A Secret recalls the DIY beginnings of the Emerald Isle’s unique surf culture and its intersection with the infamous Troubles, a violent period of political upheaval and civil unrest in Northern Ireland.
Thanks to Duncan Campbell and LUX.
