Director: Sonya Mulligan 2018 Ireland 88 mins 14+
Produced by an all-female, all-queer team, Outitude is a heartfelt documentary that attempts to get to the core of what it means to be lesbian in Ireland – exploring what defines us, what connects us, and what our commonalities and differences are.
We presented a short teaser from the film last year and are delighted to share the final film with you this year.
Dublin based filmmaker Sonya Mulligan and producer Ger Moane conducted numerous interviews and group discussions throughout Ireland, north and south, with members of the LGBTQI+ community of all ages and walks of life. The resulting grassroots film delves into the lives of rural and urban lesbians, self-professed bar dykes and queer and curious women, exploring our histories, experiences and hopes for the future. Familiar faces such as poet Mary Dorcey, journalists Nell McCafferty and Una Mullally and Irish Minister Katherine Zappone join a host of community activists, writers and dykes-about-town in this moving, insightful and often very funny gem of a film that’s long been needed in capturing lesbian experience across the generations.
Sonya, Ger and some of the film’s participants will join us after the film for a Q&A.
Outitude premiered at GAZE film festival and won the Audience Award 2018.
Presented in partnership with Gaze International LGBT Film Festival Dublin.
