Iris Prize LGBT+ Film Festival premiere screening - Involuntary Activist

Involuntary activist
Wednesday, 13 March 2019 - 6:30pm
Atrium, The University of South Wales, 86-88 Adam St, Cardiff CF24 2FN
Aled is faced with a dilemma when his sister tells him his husband isn’t on the guest list to her wedding in Turkey. Torn between alienating the sister he loves or doing something that goes against his own core values, Aled struggles to keep everyone happy.

The premiere screening will feature a Q&A with director Mikael Bundsen from Sweden, who won the Iris Prize in 2017.  Celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender film, the prize is awarded in Cardiff and allows the winner to make a new film. In 2018 Mikael filmed Involuntary Activist in Pontypridd and Cardiff.

Exploring the theme of conformity versus defiance – Involuntary Activist shows us how easy it is to stand for something in theory but what a different matter it is to stand for it in practice.  This is the tenth short film to be made by a winner of the Iris Prize.

Members can reserve their place by emailing Vicki.
