Pride team up for new film Invisible Women
During the development and production of The People's History Of the film makers came across two extraordinary women: Angela Cooper and Luchia Fitzgerald who were both featured in the BBC series.
Their story is incredible and there was no way we would do justice to it in the series so Joseph Ingram and the director Alice Smith decided to get together to tell their personal and political story over the last 50 years in their own feature to be called Invisible Women.
The result has been us filming a documentary over the last 12 months in Manchester, including Canal Street, during last year's Pride weekend, as well in many other locations in and around the city with the help and support of The People's Museum, Manchester Library and the North West Film Archive.
Whilst the film is ostensibly about Angela and Luchia's personal and political journey they are using their relationship to explore Manchester and, in particular, the forgotten and, up until now, untold story of the city's LGBTQ past.
The film is now due to enter the edit. Manchester Pride have come on board to help us complete it and are due to release some funds in order for us to do so.
However, the pair need an extra £2500 in order to hire an editor, book an edit, source and licence archive.
In order to get the film over the line and make its August premiere date they have just set up a Kickstarter campaign and we encourage you to visit the site and watch the trailer via the link below.
