FILM SCREENING AND DISCUSSION - SCHEMEBIRDS
17 Oct 6:00PM
17 Oct 8:00PM
Scottish teenager Gemma has never backed down from a fight: that’s the way of life in the housing estate where she grew up. In a place still reeling from the closure of the local steelworks, there’s little to do for teenagers looking for kicks. As Gemma says, scheme birds like her either get “locked up or knocked up”.
Lyrical yet unflinching in its gaze, this remarkable coming-of-age tale offers a sobering reflection on social inequity in today’s Scotland and the communities that have been left behind.
This special screening will include a post-show discussion.
In association with Dundee Contemporary Arts and Take One Action Film Festivals.
