Dates and times

29 Mar 2021 - 11 Apr 2021

Online Event

Available to rent on Leeds Film Player from 29th March - 11th April 2021 for £5

All three directors of the film will be taking part in a discussion about the film and the issues raised in it on Saturday 3 April at 13:00, which is free for anyone purchasing a ticket to the screening. A Zoom link will be sent out shortly before the Q&A.

The 8th follows a number of dedicated Irish female activists as they strive to overturn the 8th amendment, banning abortion, that was passed in 1983. Using archive footage throughout the 35 year battle for the right to choose, the film focuses on a number of key events during this period that provoked public demonstrations, culminating in the referendum in 2018. Documenting an emotive grassroots campaign around an issue that threatened to tear the country apart, the film is never sensationalist or provocative - it merely reflects the sense of injustice felt by so many women and their fight to be heard.

Please note the film contains a number of themes and issues which some people may find disturbing.

If you, or anyone you know have been affected by abortion the following organisations and helplines can provide advice and guidance:
British Pregnancy Advisory Service
Sexual Health Clinics
