After the screening, Jo Reid and Hannah Walters will take part in a conversation about important themes the films raise.

Hannah is a Girl Studies and Sociology researcher and co-founder of feminist collective, Girlhood Gang. There will be full access for D/deaf and Hard of Hearing cinema-goers at this screening: All films have captions and the introduction and post-film conversation will have live captions and BSL interpretation.
