The 34th: The Story of Marriage Equality in Ireland

1h 18m Documentary, Irish Film, F-Rated 2017

Spanning a decade that culminated in the 34th amendment to the Irish constitution, this IFTA-nominated feature follows the founders and members of the Marriage Equality organisation, as they campaigned for the extension of rights for civil marriage to same-sex couples.

The 34th captures this impassioned and poignant journey from Katherine Zappone and Ann Louise Gilligan’s pivotal KAL case and the emotional love story behind it, through the ardent grassroots campaign, to the historic yes vote which took place on May 22nd, 2015.

Through revealing interviews and archive material, former board members and staff recall the strategising, the fierce battles, the sheer hard graft and the personal cost of running such an all-consuming campaign, a campaign which would ultimately transform Irish society into a significantly more egalitarian and inclusive place.
