Our December screening’s catalogue has begun. The first to be announced is:

Grace, Hope & Justice

Her name is Grace… but she wasn’t given any. A survivor of Ireland’s Magdalene Laundries looks back on her life and considers the possibility of hope and justice. This short film highlights how the Magdalene Laundries are hardly an issue of the past but a pressing present-day concern for recognition of these human rights atrocities which many Irish women still have to live with today.

The Lonely Ones is the story of the end of an affair between Lauren and Robert.
