As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences, the Sue Ryder Care Centre for the Study of Supportive, Palliative and End of Life Care is pleased to invite you to a free screening of the critically acclaimed documentary Gen Silent.

The evening will comprise a short introduction by Dr Kathryn Almack, University of Nottingham, who will speak about her research “The Last Outing: exploring end of life experiences and care needs in the lives of older lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people”; a UK-based project funded by Marie Curie Cancer Care.

This will be followed by a screening of Gen Silent, a critically-acclaimed US documentary, which explores real-life issues facing older LGBT people in later life and towards the end of life. It features six individuals who discuss their personal experiences, feelings, and concerns as they face their various situations. There will be a Q&A discussion panel after the film to explore the UK context of issues raised in the documentary.
