Edie & Thea + Q&A

The story of a New York lesbian couple, acclaimed documentary Edie and Thea: A Very Long Engagement follows the pair as they prepare to exchange wedding vows after 42 years as a couple. Recreating the past with full access to a staggering collection of personal photographs and ephemera, Susan Muska & Greta Olafsdottir's moving film is a tribute to the enduring, indomitable spirit of true love. After a screening as part of the 24th London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, the producer/directors reveal their experience of working with the larger-than-life subjects of their documentary in a Q&A with programmer Emma Smart.
