Date: 16/04/2015 14:44
Archie Reid was based in Ballyclare and his films capture various facets of life there and in the surrounding areas. Part of the bustling Northern Irish amateur filmmaking community that sprang-up in the 1960s, his work often documents local places, people, or customs.

His short features meanwhile include pieces inspired by local novelists, or works of whimsy, such as Sodom and Begorrah, a humourous send-up of stage 'Oirish', starring artist and political cartoonist of repute, Rowel Friers.
