100th International Women's Day

Women Activists for Social Justice in association with Magic Lantern are today presenting a programme of screenings to celebrate the centenary of International Women’s Day.

Today in the Nerve Centre Cinema there will be a screening of Afghan Girls Can Kick by Bahareh Hosseini, followed by a Q&A with the director. This Northern Ireland premiere is an intimate portrait of teenage girls breaking the stereotypes set for them by an intensely conservative Afghan society to form Afghanistan’s first women’s national football team.

The second film, Itty Bitty Titty Committee by Jamie Babbit, is a fun film about a bunch of outrageous feminist activists working to challenge the patriarchy and bring down the state. This will be followed by a drinks reception at 6:30 pm, and films start at 7pm.

It costs £3 for the night or £2 for Magic Lantern members.
