Breaking Ground: The Story of the London Irish Women’s Centre

Synopsis
Documentary telling the story of the London Irish Women’s Centre. The film recounts the story of the Centre from its origins in the 1980s to its closure in 2012. Using a creative fusion of montage, archive and oral history the film tackles issues of radical feminism, national identity and sexual politics during this period. Made by an all women crew, the documentary combines previously unseen archive footage filmed in London over 30 years, with thoughtful and provocative accounts from some of the women who were part of the women’s movement in the city during that time.
