The We Were There documentary, directed by Laura Aguiar & Cahal McLaughlin, features the unique experiences of women in the predominantly male world of the Maze and Long Kesh Prison. It includes stories of a prison officer’s wife, prisoners’ relatives, Open University tutors, Probation Service staff and a visual artist. The film explores how the prison impacted on women’s lives, how they coped with the absence of their loved ones, and highlights the important contribution to the peace process by educational and welfare staff.
