‘PrEP17 – The coming of age of PrEP’ – Documentary film launch + panel event
Thursday 25th May, 2017
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
65 Goding St
In 2015, film maker Nicholas Feustel made a documentary film about the England PROUD PrEP trial. The documentary was shown at community events across the UK, and formed the focus for PrEPster‘s Pushing for PrEP community education events.
In January 2017, Nicholas returned to London to pick up what has happened to PrEP since the completion of the last film. PrEP17 explores the stories of over a dozen PrEP activists; current and former PrEP users; clinicians; and policy-makers. The 36 minute documentary film, commissioned by PrEPster, shines a light on how PrEP has become available to thousands of people, despite the failures of the health system.
Join PrEPster for the London launch and premiere of PrEP17. The film will be followed by an interactive panel discussion, facilitated by Will Nutland, co-founder of PrEPster. Confirmed panel members include:
- Nicholas Feustel – film maker of PrEP17
- Sophie Strachan – Sophia Forum
- Greg Owen – I Want PrEP Now
- Yusef Azad – National AIDS Trust
- Dr Michael Brady – Terrence Higgins Trust
