Wanda is delighted to have been invited to work with Northern Ireland Screen's Digital Film Archive. We have loved watching archive videos and identifying possible themes for our response. The archive is full of insight into the representation of stories from Northern Ireland over the past century. We were interested in how certain stories are represented and how narratives are created in current affairs programmes, news stories and educational programmes through framing, tone and lines of questioning. From the archive we created two responses on the themes of ‘Girls’ and ‘Work’.
Accompanying the video responses are two short essays that discuss the themes and ideas around our selection.
FULL VERSIONS OF THE ORIGINAL ARCHIVE PROGRAMMES CAN BE FOUND ON NORTHERN IRELAND SCREEN'S DIGITAL FILM ARCHIVE WEBSITE.
