Bernadette presents an unravelling, yet accumulatively open-ended portrayal of the female Irish dissident and political activist, Bernadette Devlin. Cutting between archival material, animation, and scripted voice-over, Jarman Award nominee Duncan Campbell's film is interested in fusing documentary and fiction in order to assess both the subject matter and the mode of communicating it, striving for what Samuel Beckett terms, 'a form that accommodates the mess'.
