The Queen of Ireland
86 mins | Ireland | 2015
Directed by Conor Horgan
Pandora “Panti” Bliss is many things: part glamorous aunt, part Jessica Rabbit, she’s a wittily incisive performer with charisma to burn who is regarded as one of the best drag queens in the world.
This fun and intimate portrait follows the self-styled “accidental activist” as she becomes a figurehead in the fight for LGBT rights in Ireland and a vital part of the successful campaign for marriage equality. The film builds up a multi-faceted picture of a complex and compelling character through behind the scenes footage and interviews with friends, peers and protégés.
