FREE local film to be streamed online for Culture Night

Leitrim film Sugar Sugar

‘Sugar Sugar’ written by Treasa Nealon will be streamed online for FREE on Culture Night, Friday, September 17.

“I felt stuck and ignorant and useless and I watched them tie awomen like my sister to a stake and light the match. They wanted to see us all burn.” - A quote from the film.

Tara gets ready to return home to Ireland after living in Australia alone. She packs her bags, she finds her passport, she checks off her to-do list and she ignores the voicemails on her phone. She only has a few hours before she must board her flight. She is running away. She is running towards something. She is finally ready to tell you her story.

Sugar Sugar is a one woman show about emigration, loneliness and raising money for abortion rights through unconventional means.

This online and free event will be streamed on YouTube at 7pm on Culture Night, Friday September 17, and will be available for viewing and ordering a ticket until Sepmember 19.
