Brigid 1500 – Film Season, La Syndicaliste

February 27 @ 7:30 pm

The  Brigid 1500 Film Season, hosted by Kilcullen Bridge Cinema, concludes next Tuesday February 28th with La Syndicaliste. It is fifth in a series of films that portray strong, brave, resilient female characters. Supported by Kildare County Council, all films celebrate the legacy of Saint Brigid and the values she represented.

A French thriller, La Syndicaliste tells the extraordinary real-life story of Irish woman Maureen Kearney, a senior trade union representative-turned-whistleblower in a French power company. Maureen’s efforts to expose top-secret deals met with fierce resistance from powerful people. Her life was turned upside down when she was violently assaulted and then subsequently accused by police of faking the attack.
