IFI & PRIDE 2015: CHILDREN 404

Director: ASKOLD KUROV, PAVEL LOPAREV

76 MINUTES, RUSSIA, 2014, SUBTITLED, COLOUR, DVD


This film screened on Wednesday 24th  June 2015.

The same-sex marriage referendum result was a big step forward for the country and especially for the LGBT community that has suffered so much discrimination and legal inequality over the years. So it’s perhaps fitting that this year the IFI and Pride 2015 reflects on the difficulties faced by LGBT communities around the world and the global fight for gay rights.

Founded by journalist Lena Klimova, Children-404 is an online community for Russian teenagers to discuss LGBT issues in a society moving to enshrine anti-homosexual prejudice in law. Dozens of members share their stories and experiences of bullying and rejection by friends and family, while Klimova and fellow activist Pasha bravely go before the camera.

Heartbreaking and horrifying as these tales are, the courage and resilience of the teens involved is ultimately inspiring.

This film is presented in association with the National LGBT Federation and Dublin Pride 2015.
