Two new films are being screened at the Irish Arts Center on Tuesday, November 9 at 8 pm.
Both films should prompt good discussion. Marriage is a button pusher both inside and outside the LGBT Community. We either want it completely or we want nothing to do with it.
The second film just looks sweet.
Below are the titles and descriptions for each film.
If You Like It Then You Should Be Able To Put A Ring On It
2010, 15 min
Directed by Cara Holmes and Ciara Kennedy
If You Like It Then You Should Be Able To Put A Ring On It provides a brief introduction to the Civil Marriage campaign in Ireland. Through interviews with Irish couples and representatives from marriage rights organizations, the film sensitively introduces the different strains of the movement while placing the campaign in the context of gay rights movements internationally.
Stand Up: My Best Friend
2010, 40 min
Directed by Maurice Linnane
Stand Up: My Best Friend presents a series of interviews with Irish lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people and their straight best friends and family. Produced by BeLonGTo Youth Services, an Irish national youth service organization for LGBT young people, and Long Grass Productions.
I'll be at the Irish Arts Center at 7:30pm to get together before the showing.
We'll be out by 9pm. If we feel that discussion should be had we can go to a cafe or lounge and share what's on our minds.
Admission: $10 general sale/ $8 members
The Irish Arts Center is at 533 West 51st Street.
