Folks, we’re delighted to announce that we’ve teamed up with London Irish Centre and the IFI for a very special screening of ‘The 34th Film Screening: The Story of Marriage Equality’.
Spanning a decade that culminated in the 34th amendment of the Irish Constitution, Linda Cullen and Vanessa Gildea’s IFTA-nominated documentary feature follows the founders and members of the Marriage Equality organisation, as they campaigned for the extension of civil marriage to same-sex couples.
The 34th captures this impassioned and poignant journey from Katherine Zappone and Ann Louise Gilligan’s pivotal KAL case and the emotional love story behind it, through the ardent grassroots campaign, to the historic ‘yes’ vote which took place on May 22nd, 2015.
Through revealing interviews and archive material, campaigners share the strategising, fierce battles, sheer hard graft and moving personal stories behind the compelling and all-consuming campaign.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and our Chair, Vanessa Monaghan.
We’re all taking baby steps into this new world.
