Partner institutions MoCAB and Filmforum of Students Cultural Centre, Belgrade Bernadette presents an unravelling, open-ended story of the female Irish dissident and political activist, Bernadette Devlin. Duncan Campbell is interested in fusing documentary and fiction in order to assess both the subject matter and the mode of communicating it.
Duncan Campbell (IE) (born in1972 in Dublin) lives and works in Glasgow. He completed a BA at the of Ulster, Belfast, in 1996 and an MFA at The Glasgow School of Art in 1998. His films are primarily concerned with themes relating to the past and history.
particular, Campbell leverages these mediums in an effort to explore how social,
political, and personal narratives are relayed and preserved over time. As
such, he not only questions the degree to which documentary is fiction, but he
also problematises the accepted authority and integrity of cultural records.
Archival elements are therefore interwoven with Campbell’s various personal
understandings and interpretations, as imagery of his own construction is
mashed-up with found, official documentation and original footage. Such is the
spirit of Campbell’s work: his smart, precisely crafted films convey engaging
alternate stories and portraits.
