‘African Pride’, winner of Human Rights Award at Galway Film Fleadh to be screened by Amnesty International Galway on Thursday August 21st

Amnesty International Galway hosts a special screening of the Award winning documentary African Pride

Winner of the Best Human Rights Documentary at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh, African Pride is returning to Galway for a one-off special screening.

Directed by Laura Fletcher this independent documentary looks at the way in which South Africans are meeting crimes targeting lesbian women, gay men and transgender people with visibility by means of township Prides and protests.

The Galway Film Fleadh described it as “a powerful insight into the brave fight against homophobia in South Africa.” African Pride went on to be nominated for Best Documentary at GAZE International Film Festival, where it had its Dublin Premiere earlier this month.

Amnesty International in Galway is delighted to host a screening of this thought-provoking film, followed by a panel discussion with Director Laura Fletcher, Ashling Seely, Amnesty International Ireland’s LGBT Campaign Officer, Nuala Ward from Amach LGBT Galway, and Androgynous Model and LGBT rights campaigner Ivan Fahy

“African Pride is a South African story which deals with issues that resonate across the globe. It’s the story of discrimination, resilience, love and loss,” said Fletcher.
