My Little Film Club to screen How to Have Sex for We-Consent campaign

Slattery’s of Beggar’s Bush have been hosting film screenings in recent months, with ‘My Little Film Club’ building a community of film fans in Dublin 4 for movies, drinks and discussions. Their next event is a pre-Hays-Code-classic, when they show Design For Living on March 19th. Then later this month they’ll be back to see a great film paired with an important conversation, as My Little Film Club presents a fundraiser screening of Molly Manning Walker’s How To Have Sex, with all proceeds going to the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre.

On the 27th of March the film will screen in the Slattery’s, in conjunction with the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre’s We-Consent campaign. Before the film is introduced, a representative from the DRCC will give a quick talk about consent.

We-Consent is “a new long-term national programme to inform, educate and engage with all members of our society about consent.” The DRCC campaign aims to work together to strengthen understanding of consent, to learn more about each other’s experiences, and to support everyone to have important conversations and to play their part in building a society where everybody values consent. How To Have Sex and its lived-in, empathetic storytelling is a great choice to open up that conversation.

As a trio of mates head out on a post-exams holiday to Crete, Tara (a fantastic Mia McKenna Bruce) is eager and apprehensive about losing her virginity. Tara attracts the eye of lad-next-door Badger, and the complexities of sex, consent, and self-discovery emerge as their groups merge.

Tickets are available now from Eventbrite, starting from €12.

If you have been impacted by the conversations being raised by the We-Consent Campaign, or by an experience in your life or in the life of someone close to you, you can call the Freephone 24-Hour National Helpline on 1800 77 8888
