In our Spring mini-series, Watch, Talk, Think, we present three powerful films on the theme of childhood survival in difficult homes. Each screening is followed by a panel discussion on the themes and broader issues raised with leading critics, academics and health professionals, led by Dr Robin Basu Roy, Clinical Lecturer in Paediatrics at the University of Oxford. Joining Dr Robin Basu Roy on the panel are Helen De Witt, Associate Lecturer in Film and Media, Birkbeck and University of the Arts London; Programme Advisor BFI London Film Festival, Laurence Guiness, Chief Executive, The Childhood Trust, and Roslyn Law, Consultant Clinical Pscyhologist, Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families.

In this screening, we present The Florida Project (2017) by writer-director Sean Baker. Set over one summer, the film follows precocious six-year-old Moonee as she courts mischief and adventure with her ragtag playmates and bonds with her rebellious but caring mother, all while living in the shadows of Florida’s Walt Disney World Resort. There will be a cash only bar at this event.

Rating 15, running time 115 minutes.
