PRIDE (2014) – Mother Jones Festival
August 4 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
PRIDE (2014) – Mother Jones Festival, in association with the Quay Co-op and the Cork Pride Festival present a screening of Pride at the Firkin Theater, Shandon at 5pm, introduced by Arthur Leahy. Based on a true story, Pride tells the story of how a group of gay and lesbian activists raised money to support families affected by the British miners’ strike in 1984. This unlikely alliance was unlike anything seen before, but was hugely successful. The film “Pride” has won many awards, such as the Queer Palm Award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, and has been nominated for many more, including a Golden Globe and three BAFTA’s.
