Portraying 24 hours in the life of broken Britain, Skint is receiving a limited cinema release as part of Challenge Poverty Week. A collection of seven dramatic individual stories of poverty, it spans the four nations of the UK.

At a time when 14.5 million people in the UK are living in relative poverty and 2.4 million people, including half a million children, are destitute, Skint tells the story of the actual, lived experiences of those in poverty and challenges the often negative media stereotypes about what it means to be poor.

Curated by Lisa McGee, creator of Derry Girls, and actor and director Peter Mullan, all the writers and directors on Skint are from a deprived socio-economic background.

Released in partnership with The Poverty Alliance, this screening will feature a Q&A with filmmakers and local campaigners.

Tickets are available on a Pay What You Can basis and all proceeds from the release will be donated to local food banks and community groups.
