THE MEETING – Film Screening and Q&A session: Tue 30 April, 4:45 pmPosted: 11 April, 2019
TU Dublin, in conjunction with our colleagues in NUI Galway, will roll out a smart consent programme for all incoming first-year students in 2019. Over 60 staff have been trained, and over 30 students have already volunteered to be smart consent leaders.
Screening of The Meeting followed by a Q&A with Ailbhe Griffith. TU Dublin, 30 April 2019 at 4:45pm
As part of the programme rollout, DITSU, Campus Life and the Pastoral Care and Chaplaincy Service want to raise the awareness of smart consent, but also to hear the voices and experiences of survivors of sexual violence. The Meeting is a remarkable film about a real meeting which took place between Ailbhe Griffith and the man who, nine years earlier, subjected her to a horrific sexual assault and left her seriously injured and fearing for her life. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Ailbhe
ABOUT THE MEETING
In a modest room in a Dublin suburb, two people prepare for a meeting that could have an enormous impact on their lives. For both of them, it is a complete step into the unknown.
The film is based on a real meeting which took place between Ailbhe Griffith and the man who, nine years earlier, subjected her to a horrific sexual assault and left her seriously injured and fearing for her life.
Griffith, in an extraordinary move, has chosen to play herself in this unique drama from one of Ireland’s most provocative filmmakers, Alan Gilsenan.
What emerges is a truly unique and unorthodox cinematic experience as Ailbhe courageously seeks healing through a progressive form of justice, rapidly gaining momentum throughout the world.
