Ireland on Sunday is our monthly showcase for new Irish film.

This captivating documentary 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 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 Prisons Memory Archive, which filmed 140 walk-and-talk interviews around the empty prison during the summer of 2007.

It is a fascinating, moving and very personal insight into the experiences of these women at this time.

Presented in association with the Institute for British-Irish Studies, UCD.
