“Consent” screening and discussion event

February 17, 2011

Rape Crisis Scotland is holding a special screening of the film “Consent”, which was originally broadcast on Channel 4 in 2007.

“Consent” features the dramatization of the background to a rape case, and follows colleagues Becky and Steve on the works night out which led up to the case. The second part of the film, is not a dramatization, however, but a courtroom setting where the trial is conducted as though it were real. We see at first hand the deliberations of a jury of real people, who must decide whether Steve is guilty of rape, based on what they have seen. The screening will be followed by an audience/panel discussion. The panel will include representatives from the Crown Office and the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland.

The event will take place at the cinema in the Centre for Contemporary Arts, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow on Monday 7th March at 6pm.
Attendance is free, but places must be booked in advance. Please contact julie.scobbie@rapecrisisscotland.org.uk if you would like to reserve a place.
