Exploring the Representation of Sex Workers in Film
Thursdays, 12 Feb – 19 Mar, 7pm
The Leicester Red Project; Who Do You Think We Are? is a season of six films offering a fresh insight into the lives of sex workers.
Too often, abuse perpetrated on sex workers is considered a minor issue for the media, the general public and even some feminists.
The season aims to raise awareness amongst the public and care professionals of how stigmatised representations of sex workers can have a life-threatening impact upon them.
Following each of the films - three Italian, three British – there will be a Q&A session for the audience to explore stereotypes and prejudices with guest speakers including former sex workers, activists and researchers.
The films will be screened at 7pm every Thursday between 12th February and 19th March at Phoenix, Screen Room.
Tickets for the launch event and film screenings are free and are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.
