Item consists of video work created by Liz MacDougall in 1985. Debert Bunker: By Invitation Only was described as the following: The occasion of this tape was a military coordinated rehearsal of emergency measure in the event of a nuclear war. This dry-run, which had officials (mostly men) seeking shelter from fall-out that the underground bunker at Debert, NS might provide, became the focus of non-violent collective activism from several maritime-based affinity groups (mostly women). The narrative alternates action footage with commentary from group representatives. The intention was that of describing and documenting the processes and symbolic gestures employed by each group. Women from the action had not previously used video made important contributions to production. The tape uses interviews intercut with live dramatic performance, live ritual, live footage. as well as stills and medical clips. Voice-over and live sound are both used.
