HBO production The Tale to show in Ipswich on Thursday 18th April

Ipswich-based charity Fresh Start New Beginnings has been invited by HBO to host a special screening of their Golden Globe nominated film, The Tale, which stars Laura Dern and Ellen Burstyn.

Revisiting a short story she wrote at thirteen, a documentary filmmaker (Dern) faces life altering questions about her first sexual experience and the elusive nature of memory. The Tale is director Jennifer Fox’s personal memoir examining the journey from denial to truth and the stories we tell ourselves to survive.

The film will be shown at Greshams, located on Tuddenham Road in Ipswich, on Thursday 18th April with doors opening from 6.30pm for a 7pm start. The film will be followed by a discussion and the opportunity to ask questions.

Tickets are free and must be pre-booked. Luxury cinema packs will be available on the night for a suggested minimum donation of £15.

Funds raised by the event will be donated to charities Fresh Start New Beginnings and Survivors in Transition.

Jo Grant, Clinical Lead at Fresh Start New Beginnings commented: “The Tale is a powerful film looking back at past events with a new perspective. We are delighted to be hosting this event for Ipswich and to spread awareness about the therapeutic work we do to help children and young people who have disclosed sexual abuse.”

Fiona Ellis, Operations Director at Survivors in Transition added: “It is important that we work to raise awareness of the support available for victims of childhood sexual abuse. At Survivors in Transition we help those aged 18+ and will be on hand during the evening to speak about the work we do.”
