We have a pair of tickets to give away to a screening of the film ‘Pride’, with a special Q&A, as part of the Dublin Worker’s Film Festival
The first Dublin Worker’s Film Festival, a weekend of cinema celebrating workers, will screen some seminal films on Saturday, October 1.
Opening the festival at 1pm is Ousmane Sembène’s pioneering film, The Black Girl. Released 50 years ago, it is the first sub Saharan African feature film and it follows a young black woman who goes to work for a rich French family. A sharp critique of work, migration and gender, The Black Girl resonates deeply half a century on.
Screening at 3pm is Matewan, the 1987 classic dramatising the events of the Battle of Matewan, a coal miners’ strike in 1920 in Matewan, a small town in the hills of West Virginia.
The festival’s grand finale at 6.30pm is Pride, the uplifting true story of LGSM, a group of young lesbians and gays who raised money in solidarity with the striking miners in 1984. One of the original members of the LGSM (Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners), Gethin Roberts will be on hand for a Q&A after the film.
