Overview

Q&A with Minister for Children and Youth Affairs Katherine Zappone moderated by author Yvonne Cassidy and reception to follow the screening.



The 34th
documents the driven and dedicated group of people who formed the grassroots force behind the extension of civil marriage to same-sex couples in Ireland. Through revealing interviews and archival material, former board members and staff outline the strategizing, fierce battles, sheer hard graft, and the personal cost of running such an all-consuming campaign.

From the KAL (Katherine Zappone and Ann Louise Gilligan) case and the emotional love story behind it, to the historic YES vote on May 22, 2015, this documentary spans a decade and culminates in the passing of the 34th amendment to the Irish constitution.



Directors / Producers: Linda Cullen & Vanessa Gildea
