We Were There


We Were There” is a captivating documentary film which features the unique experiences of women in the predominantly male world of the Maze/Long Kesh Prison during the Troubles in Northern Ireland. 

The film includes the stories of a prison officer’s wife, prisoners’ relatives, Open University tutors, Probation Service staff and a visual artist.

The interviews featured in the film were recorded by the Prison Memory Archive, which filmed 140 walk–and–talk interviews around the empty prison during the summer of 2007.

The CAN PEACE III Partnership, through the Time Served Programme, will host a one off screening of this fascinating and moving film on Tuesday 16 September at 7.00pm in the Old Courthouse Theatre, Market Square, Antrim.  To attend this free screening please contact Janet Stewart on 90340017 or jstewart@newtownabbey.gov.uk
