The first screening of 'The Road from Crime' film was shown at the University of Glasgow yesterday evening, Monday 18th June, and was very well received by the 250+ people who attended. It was introduced by Kenny MacAskill, Cabinet Secretary for Justice who stayed to watch the film, tweeting afterwards that he thought it was both powerful and insightful.
A panel of those involved in the project took questions from the audience at the end. This included Allan Weaver who featured in the film; Eamonn Devlin, the Director; Fergus McNeill (University of Glasgow); and Claire Lightowler (Iriss).
A DVD of the film will be available for purchase in July and it will be made freely available online in September.
