Spotlight – Portsmouth Film Society Screening

Spotlight is an extraordinary film based on real events; a team of investigative journalists uncover a widespread historical child sexual abuse by priests in the Catholic Church.

“What is extra superb about this screening is that Kim Hosier, the Centre Director of Portsmouth Abuse & Rape Counselling Service (PARCS) will be introducing the film. She is an extraordinary person who runs a charity that Portsmouth really could not do without; they run so many vital services for abuse survivors in the area and they help so many people.” – Tessa Foley.

PARCS run vital services and counselling for survivors in Portsmouth and South East Hampshire.

The PARCS elephant, which has become somewhat of a celebrity in the Portsmouth area, as a representation of ‘the elephant in the room’ will be making an appearance at the screening too.

The screening of Spotlight will take place in EW 1.11, at 7.30 pm on Wednesday 7 March and is open to staff, students and members of the public. This special event is only £6 a ticket or free to attend for students. You can reserve your seat and check out the rest of the Winter Programme on the Portsmouth Film Society website.
