The 34th: The Story of Marriage Equality in Ireland
Ireland / 2017 / 78 min. / original version with Czech subtitles
‘The 34th’ tells the story of the driven and dedicated bunch of people who formed Marriage Equality in Ireland and developed it into a highly effective grassroots force with one clear goal in mind - the extension of Civil Marriage to same-sex couples. Through revealing interviews and archive material, former board members and staff outline the strategizing, fierce battles, sheer hard graft, and personal cost of running such an all-consuming campaign. From the KAL (Katherine Zappone and Ann Louise Gilligan) case and the emotional love story behind it to a YES vote on 22nd May 2015, this documentary spans a decade culminating in the 34th amendment to the Irish constitution, allowing same-sex marriage.
