School of Health Sciences presents Kidulthood film screening

2.00pm

Panel Discussions

Public, Staff, Students, Alumni, Academics

The SHS Film club is an award winning initiative in which we screen films which feature health topics and then discuss the way these topics are featured. This month we are screening Kidulthood, a 2006 film about gangs in West London. This hard-hitting British film explores the social experience of being an inner city teenager in London, with bullying, drugs, sexual activity including teenage pregnancy, fighting and death presented as a daily norm. The film has a British Board of Film Classification of 15.

We will also be joined by Dorcas Gwata and Adam Deacon to discuss the themes of the film. Dorcas is a Clinical Nurse Specialist who was awarded Nursing Standard Mental Health Nurse of the year in 2015. She works at Westminster CAMHS and Integrated Gangs Unit in the Children's Services of City of Westminster. Dorcas collaborates with our children’s nursing team on the development  and education of student nurses. Adam Deacon is a lead actor in Kidulthood who has since developed links with City’s division of nursing as someone who has experience of using mental health services in East London. He is best known for his lead role in the films Kidulthood, the sequel Adulthood and for his directorial debut, Anuvahood

The event is free and open to all staff, students and persons directly connected with the activities of City, University of London
