Screen Debate

Every year we hold a screen debate in conjunction with the Glasgow Film Theatre, to mark September as month of action to raise awareness of childhood sexual abuse.

National Treasure is a four-part 2016 British television drama by Channel 4, written by Jack Thorne. Paul Finchley (Robbie Coltrane) is a ‘national treasure’. Although no longer a cutting edge comedian he still has a media presence, a comfortable lifestyle and public recognition and admiration. His home life with his wife (Julie Walters) is strained due to his past affairs, and the mental health difficulties experienced by their grown up daughter. Then Finchley is accused of historical rape and following media coverage a second woman comes forward.

Parts 1 and 4 will be screened, followed by a panel and audience discussion on issues raised, including the ethics around media coverage of sexual violence.

Tuesday 5th September.  Screening will start at 5.45pm

All tickets £5.50, available from the GFT box office
