Screenings (No. 1)

Bernadette, 2008, dir: Duncan Campbell

I came across Duncan Campbell while interning for Hotel Gallery in London late last year. Bernadette presents an unconventional yet insightful portrait of Irish dissident and political activist Bernadette Devlin. Campbell’s film utilizes archival material, found footage, animation, and scripted voice-over to upend the formal conventions of documentary filmmaking.
