Womens Support Project


Glasgow Film Theatre, Rose Street, Glasgow

Women’s Support Project is again hosting a screen debate to mark September as ‘Month of Action to raise awareness of childhood sexual abuse’.

This year we will be screening excerpts from National Treasure, 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.

The screening will be followed by a panel and audience discussion on issues raised, including the ethics around media coverage of sexual violence.

All tickets and £5.50 and are available from the GFT box office   www.glasgowfilm.org/whats-on/all
