Location: Woodside Conference Room, Callington Road Hospital
Screening of 'Shame' (2011) followed by a discussion hosted by Dr Thanos Tsapas.
Michael Fassbender plays Brandon, a mid-30s successful
businessman in New York, balancing his daily work life with his
all-consuming addiction to sex.
When his free spirited sister Sissy (Carey Mulligan) unexpectedly
comes to stay Brandon's neatly organised world is shaken and he
faces having his dark secret unravel.
Director Steve McQueen is no stranger to tackling controversial
themes: his new film '12 Years a Slave' focusses on slavery in the
US and is currently receiving rave reviews.
Shame is an equally challenging and well-received exploration,
pulling no punches as it considers the impact of addiction on
Dr Thanos Tsapas from the Bristol Psychological Therapies Services
