Film: The 8th


After a 35-year struggle the pro-choice side radically shift tactics to try to bring an historically conservative electorate over the line. This is a rare opportunity to see this important documentary film, released in 2021, on the big screen.

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 the veteran 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
