International Women’s Day: screening of the documentary “Untold Secrets” and discussion

To mark International Women’s Day, the Institut invites you to a screening of the documentary “Untold Secrets” by Galway-based Spanish director Teresa Lavina.

After the screening, Teresa Lavina will be joined by researcher Pilar Iglesias for a discussion on the experiences of repression and punishment suffered by Spanish and Irish women during the 20th century. These experiences profoundly affected the bodies, sexuality and lives of many women and girls. The discussion will be moderated by Caelainn Hogan.

Film Synopsis:

“Untold Secrets” tells the story of survivors of Irish homes for mothers and babies, focusing on the life and upbringing of one of them, Anne Silke. Raised in a convent in Tuam, Anne Silke was entrusted to the care of an influential family in the town at the age of nine. The documentary recounts the often brutal and abusive treatment she endured at the hands of her adoptive family. Although Anne Silke is now deceased, the documentary gives her a posthumous voice and perhaps offers her family a chance to put her story behind them.
