This will be followed by a panel discussion covering the history of sex work in Ireland, focusing on topics of care, working conditions and resistance, and how these events relate to the lives of sex workers in Ireland today.

Note: Please note that this film and panel discussion contains adult themes as per the description. The film is in French with English subtitles.
