Women_Like_Us1

Double Bill – two extraordinary films about older lesbian and gay people, their relationships and families. Introduced by Rosalind Pearson, co-director of Women Like Us.

Women Like Us (1990) Dir. Suzanne Neild & Rosalind Pearson. UK. 55min

A pioneering amateur documentary showing lives of lesbians over 60, which has not been surpassed in terms of introducing older lesbians and making space for them to speak for themselves.

A Last Farewell (2013) Dir. Casper Andreas. Sweden. 13min

A Last Farewell is both a calm and unsettling portrait of an aging author’s sorrow over the death of his long-term partner. Haunted by visions of his late husband, and in conflict with his daughter who is trying to renew the ties between them, he must tackle the impossible task of moving on and finding peace in the wake of a devastating loss.

£5 / £3 con. £10 for all three screenings at Penrith Old Fire Station
