BPW are delighted to partner with Northern Ireland Screen and the Crescent Arts Centre to bring to you two wonderful documentaries about the Belfast Print Workshop and the local art scene in the 1980's and 90's.

Documentary Screening at the Crescent Arts Centre
6.00 – 9.00pm - Free Event - Booking Required

The first documentary, made for the Arts Council of Northern Ireland in 1989 is about the Belfast Print Workshop, set in the old kitchen at Riddell Hall. This fascinating snapshot of the workshop features Sophie Aghajanian, Camilla Brown, David Crone, Diarmuid Delargy, Micky Donnelly, Kent Jones, Colin Mc Gookin, Pancho Mondrial and the current BPW chair of the board James Allen.

This will be followed by The Trouble with Art. A revealing documentary inviting us into the studios and thoughts of 13 artists as they reflect on the impact ‘the Troubles’ has on their lives and their art. Through painting, sculpture and performance they each find their own way to respond to the situation they find themselves in.

Featuring Tom Bevan, Gerry Devlin, Michael Donaghy, Micky Donnelly, Rita Duffy, Nuala Gregory, Catherine Harper, Colin Mc Gookin, Philip Napier, Jack Pakenham, Dermot Seymour, André Stitt and Ross Wilson.

We are delighted to have artist Jack Pakenham introduce the films in this one off screening event with Northern Ireland Screen Digital Film Archive.
