Event description
For this year's 16 Days of Action against VAWG, we are hosting a virtual screening of our unreleased film ‘Never Going to Beat You’!

About this event

What began as the true stories of 18 different Romany Gypsy and Irish Traveller survivors of domestic abuse, grew into a theatre production and film in partnership with Giants Theatre Company and Crispy Biscuit Films. The characters in the film are portrayed by a mix of women and men from the Traveller Movement and professional actors.

Threading aspects of the women’s lives together, the film tells the story of 17-year-old Moira La Bas, who is about to sit her ‘A’ Levels when she meets Patrick, an older divorcee at a St Patrick’s Day dance. He woos her and wins her over, but Moira’s mother Evie foresees disaster and tries to rally the community to save her daughter.

“It was a powerful, eye-opening piece of film that added much needed personalisation to the issues faced by travelling communities in relation to domestic abuse”

This December, we are screening our unreleased film to highlight the issue of domestic abuse. Following the film screening, we are hosting a virtual Q&A session via Zoom with members of the cast to discuss how ‘Never Going To Beat You’ came to life, and why.

This event is free, but we are accepting donations here

Join us for this unique opportunity to watch ‘Never Going To Beat You’, a masterful portrayal of how domestic abuse can destroy lives.

When you book in, we will send you the unreleased film via email and the Zoom link to join the Q&A. If you have any questions, feel free to contact
