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 is massively in favor of 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.
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 Castro Theater to bring the Movies that Matter 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.
