Film Premiere

On Tuesday 18th June students and staff from across the University of Southampton were joined by external visitors for the film premiere of an innovative teaching and learning resource.

The film was created by a multi-disciplinary partnership of academic staff and students. It is based on the real-life experience of a University of Southampton student who survived genocide in his home country. The film is intended to help students, health professionals and faculty to understand and address the complex nature of trauma.

The project team included several members of MEDU: Dr Sunhea Choi (e-Learning Manager), Dr Larry Day (GP & Principal Clinical Teaching Fellow) and Dr Kathy Kendall (Senior Lecturer in Sociology as Applied to Medicine) who worked together with three medical students: Nimeshi Jayakody, Jeremy McCabe and Devendra Rajwani as well as Professor Thomas Lawson (Professor of Holocaust Studies, University of Winchester).

The premiere and the subsequent reception were well-attended. The event was opened by Dr Chris Stephens. Members of the project team introduced the screening, which was followed by a lively discussion with the audience.
