A Fantastic Woman Showing and Discussion

The Picturehouse Bradford is showing A Fantastic Woman from Friday 16th March.

Showtimes can be found here.

There will be a panel discussion held before the first showing from 5.45pm. The panel will include Saorsa, Helen and Stephanie from Chrysalis in Lancashire.

Best known to international audiences for his acclaimed fourth film, Gloria (2013) – which garnered Paulina García the Best Actress Award at the Berlin International Film Festival – Argentinian born, Chilean director Sebastián Lelio turns after a four-year absence with A Fantastic Woman. Featuring another stellar lead performance, Lelio’s latest feature stars Daniela Vega as Marina, a transwoman dealing with grief, transphobia and cold, humiliating bureaucracy.

A vision of defiant resistance, Marina’s trials are kick-started by the death of her lover, Orlando (Francisco Reyes). Having to inform Orlando’s family of the tragedy, Marina is met with suspicion and hostility due to her status as a transwoman. Instead of being comforted during her grief, Marina finds herself having to fight for her home, her rights and even custody of a beloved pet dog. Provocatively queer and female-centred, the Almodovaresque A Fantastic Woman is also deeply intelligent, sexy and tender.

The UK celebrates LGBT HISTORY MONTH in February every year. For 2018 the theme is “Geography-Mapping Our World.”

LGBT+ campaign organisation JUST A BALL GAME? (JBG?) supported by Kick It Out (KIO) and members of the Bradford City LGBT+ fan group have created an online interactive map featuring a selection of International LGBT+ Fan Groups to help raise awareness and visibility around LGBT+ Equality, Inclusion and Diversity.

Alongside of  this four physical cut-out style maps with additional artwork featuring LGBT+ fan groups logos and names have been developed to enable young people to engage and learn about LGBT+ football supporters across the globe. These mapping exercises not only give an introduction to LBGT+ people but also bring in new learning skills around the use of on-screen tech, graphic design, geography, history, discovery, teamwork, collaboration and debate all in a fulfilled environment and safe space.

Speaking on the launch of the resources, Roisin Wood, CEO of Kick It Out, commented: “We’re pleased to be supporting JBG? with their online interactive map for LGBT History Month.”

“We hope the educational resources will help encourage football supporters and beyond to find out more about LGBT+ inclusion in the game”


Proud Cherries founder Louise Clarke says, “I would like to thank Lindsay and ‘Just A Ball Game?’ for putting together such a brilliant map.”

“It’s great to visually see just how many groups there are and to hopefully watch the numbers increase. It will also be a massive help in making contact with other groups to arrange meet ups or plan projects together.”


The online map can be found on the download page of the JUST A BALL GAME? website: http://www.justaballgame.co.uk/downloads  and can also be found here on the KICK IT OUT website: http://www.kickitout.org/
