SWOP NT - Darwin's premiere screening of Scarlet Road!
NTAHC's SWOP NT is proud to present Darwin's premiere screening of Scarlet Road!
Scarlet Road follows the extraordinary work of Australian sex worker, Rachel Wotton. Impassioned about freedom of sexual expression and the rights of sex workers, Rachel specialises in a long-overlooked clientele -people with disability.
Doors open at 6pm for a 6.15pm start with 70 minute screening time.
Followed by a Q & A panel with Rachel Wotton from Touching Base, Jules Kim, CEO & Ryan Cole President of Scarlet Alliance - Australian Sex Workers' Association www.scarletalliance.org.au/who/ and from the Sex Worker Outreach Program- SWOP NT.
Guests are invited to meet the star of Scarlet Road, Rachel Wotton along with other sex worker organisations representatives in the BCC Cinema function room following the screening and Q&A. Light refreshments/beverages provided.
The film, a Walkley Award Finalist, provides a rare glimpse into a world that most people are oblivious to or would rather pretend doesn't exist.
"People assume disabled people don't have the same biological needs and desires that everyone else has...but sexual expression is a basic need for everyone, not just for those who can walk and talk freely" Article Link
