Sharon Adams | Film Makers

A film about artist Sharon Adams's participation in the Film Makers project in 2017.

In celebration of Northern Ireland's rich craft landscape past and present, six makers were invited to product new work in response to heritage footage from the Northern Ireland Screen Digital Film Archive. Film Makers features Sharon Adams, Sheena Devitt, Alison Fitzgerald, Nicola Gates, Ronan Lowery and Peter Surginor. TACA documented how their encounter with the archive has encouraged new ideas and developments in each of the maker's work. The resulting six short films highlight the relationship between historical skills, archive and contemporary making. This collaborative project emphasises the value of craft makers in the province and records a sample of their activities for future generations to enjoy through archive film.
