The screening of Open Door - Residents of the Divis Flats and The British Connection - Shankill Road is part of our archive-based project High Rise Low Rise.

The British Connection – Shankill Road, BBC (1978).

This documentary explore life within Belfast during the 1970s.  Whilst the geography and the housing in these areas are initially explored, many relevant issues from the time are inextricably linked, other than the obvious political ones – public health, safety, childcare, women’s rights and others are highlighted.

There will be a panel after the film including Professor Paddy Gray, and Dessie Donnolly from PPR.

This project is supported by the BFI Film Audience Network as part of Changing Times: Shifting Ground.
