Clients at AMH New Horizons in Downpatrick worked collaboratively with Blue Bird Media Company and the Down County Museum to create a film exploring crime and punishment in the old Downpatrick Gaol in the 1800s.
The film, entitled “Prisoners of the Past” will be launched on Thursday 25th July 2013 at 10.30am in the Eclipse Cinema, Downpatrick.
Catherine Hamill, Skills Coach at AMH said of the project;
“This has been a unique process whereby clients researched gaol conditions and prisoner stories as well as crimes and punishments of the time. Clients used primary sources obtained from the museum, such as prisoner detail sheets and newspaper articles.”
Entry to the launch is free but there are a limited number of places allocated for the event.
For tickets please email Catherine Hamill firstname.lastname@example.org by 15th July 2013.
