Film screening event co-presented with LUX

Wednesday 11 September 2019 7–8.30PM

Sop from Rita Munus in collaboration with Charlotte Procter (Cinenova/LUX) present a screening event as part of the Write It Speak It Move It project. The screening is an attempt to describe the complex relationship between a life lived with chronic illness and medical institutions; including diagnoses, medications and medicalised narratives which often simplify the sick person’s sense of self and agency.

The films chosen present contrasts to formalised routes of medical care and instead draw on friendship and the informal structure of mutual care and support given from our chosen family–our friends, which often passes unacknowledged but can be life saving.
