Linda Cullen & Vanessa Gildea’s documentary, ‘The 34th’ tells the story of the driven and dedicated people who formed Marriage Equality in Ireland and developed it into a highly effective grassroots force with one clear goal in mind – the extension of Civil Marriage to same-sex couples.
Through revealing interviews and archive material, former board members and staff outline the strategising, fierce battles, sheer hard graft and personal cost of running such an all-consuming campaign.
The film was featured at the 2017 GAZE International LGBT Film Festival in Dublin where it received two awards: The Audience Award and The Spirit of GAZE award.
It has been shown at a number of special screening events throughout 2018 but this is the first time it will be available to watch en masse.
‘The 34th’ is available to watch right now on Netflix.
