Rape Crisis Scotland is holding a special screening of the drama ‘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 isconducted 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, the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland and Archway Glasgow.
Attendance is free, but places must be booked in advance. Please contact
email@example.com if you would like to reserve a place.
