Join a gallery tour of the exhibition We realised the power of it that deals with the history and archive of the radical film collective, Derry Film and Video Workshop (DFVW). DFVW was a woman-led film production company established in Derry in 1983 that operated until 1990. Its members, most of whom had no prior experience of filmmaking, came together with a sense of urgency to make films addressing overlapping political tensions around gender, class, the Irish national question and legacies of colonialism.
