After the big succes of the first movie night on May 17 to celebrate the International Day Against Homophobia, we are now preparing a second movie night on LGBT rights, which will take place in Záhrada Centre of Independent Culture (Námestie SNP 16, Banská Bystrica) on Friday June 14 at 6 pm.
This time we will tackle this controversial issue from a completely different point of view: we will watch the Italian documentary Due volte genitori (Parents reborn), a film by Claudio Cipelletti produced by Agedo Onlus with the support of the European Commission, Project Daphne II “Family matters”. The film looks straight into the heart of the family as it adjusts to the news that their son or daughter is homosexual. Mothers and fathers cope with their crushed expectations and begin to accept their own rebirth as parents, aside from the issue of homosexuality itself.
We will watch the film in Italian with Slovak subtitles and afterwards there will be a discussion in Slovak and English moderated by Rado Sloboda from the University Group Amnesty International Banská Bystrica. Thanks to the Interpreters and Translators University Agency (Tlmočnícka a prekladateľská spoločnosť FHV UMB) Stanka will be there to help us with the translation.
To take part in the movie night, you will not be asked to pay an admission fee, but you can make a voluntary offer which will go to Záhrada to cover electricity costs.
Here’s the event on Facebook, so spread the word! I also seize the opportunity to thank in advance our partners in the organisation of the event: Záhrada, University Group Amnesty International Banská Bystrica, the Interpreters and Translators University Agency and and the subtitlers (Roman Ries and Paulína Majerčáková).
I hope I’ll meet you all in Záhrada!
