‘Border Tales’ is an oral history film that deals with people’s experience of ‘the troubles’ in the Northwest of Ireland, as they remember it. The stories are personal to each one, and their experiences are sometimes similar, and sometimes vastly different.
It comes from a wider project run by the Regional Cultural Centre in Letterkenny called ‘Northwest Border Stories’ that involved primary school-aged children from Donegal, Derry and Tyrone being trained in documentary techniques and conducting interviews with grandparents about their experience of the troubles.
Supported through the European Union’s PEACE IV programme managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
Duration 80 minutes
