Frameline & Kingdom of the Netherlands present:
Movies that Matter: The Law of Love

The documentary, The Law of Love (2022) by Barbora Chalupová captures the long battle to open up marriage to same-sex couples in the Czech Republic. Despite the fact that Czech public opinion massively supports marriage equality, the brave (and very patient) activists have to battle conservative politicians, the church and violent right-wing extremists. When it comes to legalizing marriage, ignorance and hatred suddenly appear, showing that the fight for LGBTQ+ rights in Europe is not over. You can find the trailer here.

The documentary won the Audience Award at Mezipatra Queer Film Festival.

Admission is free.

In September 2022, H.M. Queen Maxima of the Netherlands visited Castro Street, meeting with local LGBTQ+ community leaders. As a result, the Consulate General of the Netherlands in San Francisco now partners with Frameline film festival and the Castro Theater to bring Movies that Matter programming to San Francisco.

Movies that Matter is an international film and debate festival about human rights in the Hague, Netherlands, the International City of Peace and Justice.

Frameline: Founded in 1977, the San Francisco International LGBTQ+ Film Festival is the longest-running, largest and most widely recognized LGBTQ+ film exhibition event in the world.

Doors open at 6:30.
