Poverty: Our Hidden Shame? Screening


Plantation Productions and the GalGael Trust are proud to present a free screening of Poverty: Our Hidden Shame?, a research documentary developed by the very talented Create Crew.

Since September last year, the Create Crew have been busy developing an investigative piece on the impact that austerity measures have on people around Glasgow. The documentary was commissioned by NHS Scotland and Ofxam Scotland.

The screening will take place 1pm, Friday the 17th of June at the GoGlasgow Urban Hotel on Paisley Road West. More details can be found at our Eventbrite page.


Below are some images taken from the crew’s private screening for friends and family. A great night was had by all and we look forward to our next screening on the 17th.

  1. Hi
    I was at the event last Friday and felt the film was really powerful. I work for Child poverty action in a project called Cost of the school day. We’re developing teacher training to improve teachers’ understanding of the barriers cost can create to children taking part and enjoying school and the film would be a great resource. Can I suggest that you have shorter clips from the film available? It would make it easier to use in training

    thanks again for an inspiring film and please let me know when it’s up on vimeo
