L'étincelle, a history of LGBT+ struggles

  • Category: Ciné débat
  • Dates : November 14-15, 2023
  • Location: Tuesday, November 14 in Carcassonne. Wednesday November 15 in Montpellier and Perpignan.

Documentary film by Benoît Masocco, 2019, running time: 1:38.

50 years ago, the Stonewall riots marked the beginning of the LGBT+ struggle. Since then, the struggle has gone from strength to strength. From New York to Paris, from San Francisco to Amsterdam, these few decades of struggle are brought to life through testimonials and never-before-seen archive footage. We (re)discover the activism of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people who lived through the repression of the 1960s, the sexual liberation of the 1970s, the tragedy of AIDS in the 80s, before fighting for the right to marry in the 2000s.
