24 hours in the life of broken Britain.

A limited cinema release as part of Challenge Poverty Week, SKINT is a collection of seven  dramatic individual stories of poverty, across the four nations of the UK. 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.

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.

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

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