a short film about opening access to archives
by Spiro Kyriacou and Michelle Pauli for the JISC Film and Sound Think Tank
What would you do if you had free access to all the footage and stories held in film and sound archives? Featuring students alongside experts from top UK archives, Knowledge Is explores the potential and issues around accessing, using and re-using our rich film and sound heritage. It also tells a story within a story, using clips from these archives, including little-seen footage from the suffragette movement.
