Debert Bunker: By Invitation Only

Liz MacDougall

1985, 35:00 minutes, colour, English


Debert Bunker: By Invitation Only is a community-style video production which presents a women's perspective on why and how we must speak out in the face of mindless government and military planning for our "protection" from nuclear attack.

At a collective one-day action outside a military base in Debert, Nova Scotia, forms such as street theatre and ritual are used to point out the ironies of military rehearsals for nuclear war. The ideas presented by the groups involved in this action are diverse, inspiring and original challenges to Canada's Nuclear Defense Policy.
