Summary :

At the same time, in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists is raising funds to support minors. Mark, Joe, Mike and Steph come together to create the movement “Lesbians and gays in support of minors”

Excerpt from the review of Culture Bubbles on feature film pride written upon its theatrical release:

A fabulous cast, touching and authentic personalities and laugh-out-loud scenes against the backdrop of the (sublime) Welsh landscape, this film delights both with the beauty of the scenes and the brilliant script of Stephen Beresford. Thus, difficult subjects are approached with humor and sensitivity: dictatorial policy of the Iron Lady, emergence of AIDS…

Shooting secrets, anecdotes: did you know?

  • Le Film tells the story the true story and incredible number of gay activists who supported the miners’ strike movement in Wales in the 1980s.
  • Realized by Matthew Warchus (Simpatico), this feature film is the fruit of a long research work carried out by the actor and author of English plays Stephen Beresford.
    Indeed, for his first fiction script for the cinema, he relied on real facts which for him constituted a turning point for the politics of his country in those years: “It’s a hugely important story, and I think the LGSM [NDLR : Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners] unwittingly contributed to breaking down barriers and prejudices, leading to gay rights being recognized and protected by the community LGBT (Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transsexuals)the Labor Party manifesto and the Trades Union Congress.
    The Welsh really felt that no one had yet recognized what these young people achieved, and everyone we met was happy to talk about it and see the culmination of their struggle finally represented at the screen “
  • The original music was composed by Christopher Nightingale.
  • Presented at the Directors’ Fortnight in 2014, this film received numerous awards including the Queer Palm at the Cannes film festival and 1 BAFTA Award for Best New Producer and Writer for Producer David Livingstone and the screenwriter Stephen Beresford.
