Women in the Archives – Changing the Narrative Screening

Women in the Archives – Changing the Narrative Screening

Before the Summer, we worked with a group of women in South Armagh on a filmmaking programme called Changing the Narrative. Participants made five shorts celebrating women’s roles in the area and the rich traditions, stunning landscape, and heritage in the area. The films also challenges the narrative so commonly associated with South Armagh. The films were made by 24 participants, aged 13 to 60s, for the ‘Women in the Archives’ strand and it was led by the PRONI and the Nerve Centre in partnership with the Newry, Mourne and Down District Council.

FILMS:

Voices of Gullion – An exploration of language, song tradition and South Armagh’s stunning landscape.

The Threads That Bind Us – An Insight into the rich tradition of lace-making and the pieces that bind women together across generations.

Breaking The Mould– Meet some of the women and girls involved in a variety of sports, such as camogie, netball, hill walking and football.

Women in Farming – Three farmers from different generations discuss the past, present and future of farming.

ROGHA – Meet ROGHA, a collective of hand crafters and artists whose work is inspired by the unique heritage and majesty of the Ring of Gullion.

After the screening of the five films at  two Film Festivals this month, we are having a local public showing of the films.
