Event Details

Join us for a rare screening of the 2009 independent film Wasted, enjoy a glass of wine with the cast and crew, and help us raise some much needed funds for Homeless charity Social Bite.

Directed by Caroline Paterson and Stuart Davids of Raindog, Wasted is an uncompromising film about two young lovers, Connor (Neil Leiper)  and Suzanne (Emma Hartley-Miller). 

 

Thrown together by fate as children, Connor and Suzanne share a dark secret that will bind them together  for life. The story follows them as they reconnect on the streets of Glasgow, after many years apart. As their relationship deepens and both begin to understand the nature of their love for one another, they struggle to articulate their closeness. But one night changes everything and leads to a startling revelation.

We follow Connor and Suzanne into into a hidden world of addiction and prostitution where we get to meet Michelle (Kate Dickie), a young heroin addict who longs to bring up her daughter, but can't give up her chaotic life; Joe (David Hayman) a long term heroin addict, who is frightened by the world outside, and a punter (Gary Lewis) who is convinced that he doesn't pay for sex. Through their stories we experience a community of young people who have been forgotten by society and start to get to know and understand the lives they need to live.

Cinema Screening and Online Release

Wasted screens at 7pm on 13th December at GMAC, and will be followed by a Q&A with members of the cast and crew, as well as drinks. If you can't make it along, the film will launch online on our website the following day - 14th December.

Help us Support the Homeless

We really want to make the screening and the online launch an opportunity to raise money to help some of the people affected by some of the issues in the film, and have chosen to support Social Bite. All profits from both the screening and the online streams will be donated to Social Bite.

Support From our Partners

Many thanks to GMAC who have kindly offered the use of their cinema room for the screening, and to web platform Social Screen, who have donated staff time, and proceeds from the online streaming.

Now we just need you. Please book your tickets to come along to the screening. Bring a pal. We'll look forward to meeting you.
