Let Us Be Seen is a rally cry demanding that people in Belfast who campaign tirelessly for change are finally seen and heard. It is a splash of colour, showcasing the creative ways individuals provide an alternative to the binary politics in Belfast, deploying a unique local blend of gallows humour in the face of adversity.

The film documents the prelude and aftermath of the momentous law change in Northern Ireland to decriminalise abortion and legalise same-sex marriage, which occurred via Westminster ruling on 21st October 2019. It deals with the myriad issues affecting feminists in the North of Ireland and what grassroots feminism means in this context from those who are directly involved.

Doors: 18:00. Screening: 18:30.

The screening is being held during Women’s Month and will be the first showing of Let Us Be Seen in Liverpool. The film will be followed by a Q&A session with director Elspeth Vischer.

This screening has a pay-what-you-can approach, with a recommended contribution of £5. All proceeds from the event will be donated to Alliance for Choice Belfast and WHISC Liverpool.
