Full text not available from this repository.


A 2 hour film, or four screen-installation, which takes participants back to the empty site of the Maze and Long Kesh Prison. In a collaborative film, two ex-prisoners and a prison officer separately walk and talk their way around the site, with memories stimulated by the materiality of the disused site. Two female Open University teachers retrace their car journey to the prison, discussing their experiences of working in an all male environment. The films have been screened in galleries at Constitution Hill, Johannesburg, Imperial War Museum, London, Belfast Prison, and Catalyst Arts Centre, Belfast. It has also been broadcast on NVTV, a local television broadcaster in Belfast.
