Event Details

”The 8th” traces Irelands campaign to remove the 8th mendment – a constitutional ban on abortion. It shows a countrys transformation from a conservative state in thrall to the Catholic church to a more liberal secular society. ”The 8th” includes voices from both sides of the debate, but its primary focus is on the dynamic female leaders of the pro-choice campaign. The film follows veteran pro-choice campaigner Ailbhe Smyth and self-described glitter-activist Andrea Horan as they chart a bold strategy of grassroots activism and engineer the impossible. This dramatic story is underscored by a vivid exploration of the wrenching failures that led to this defining moment in Irish history. An urgent narrative, a cautionary tale and a roadmap for progressive reforms in a modern era where authoritarianism is on the rise,  ”The 8th” shows a country forging a new progressive path when reproductive rights are threatened all over the world.
