U.S. Premiere of Wave Goodbye to Dinosaurs

March 12, 2018

Panel discussion following the film screening

GIWPS co-hosted the U.S. premiere of the documentary film Wave Goodbye to Dinosaurs at the British Embassy. On the 20th anniversary of Northern Ireland’s Good Friday Agreement, the film tells the extraordinary story of the Northern Ireland Women’s Coalition, a cross-community women’s party formed in 1996 that won two seats for women at the historic peace talks and fought to ensure policies around human rights, equality, and inclusion were reflected in negotiations. After the film, GIWPS’ Rebecca Turkington joined film director, Eimhear O’Neill, and two Women’s Coalition founding members, Kate Fearon and Bronagh Hinds, for a conversation about the film and its relevance today.
