The tender, heartbreaking story of a young man’s struggle to find himself, told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love, while grappling with his own sexuality.  Told in three chapters, Moonlight follows the life of Chiron, a young black man who has faced adversity since childhood due to his sexuality and struggles to develop his own identity in a neighbourhood looking to punish anyone seen as weak. A luminous and heartbreaking story, Oscar’s best picture winner film is revealing the joy and pain of life, self-discovery and falling in love.

THE TRUE COST (2015)
Cert 12 | 92min, 6pm

This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing?  We will host the groundbreaking, eye-opening film, which exposes the impact of fashion on people and the planet. This screening is part of the Fashion Revolution campaign for 2017 in the Creative Industries, CCI. This will be followed by a panel Q&A discussion including invited industry professionals and academics, chaired by Professor Deborah Sugg Ryan.
