This is the first screening of TUESDAYS, a documentary made by independent filmmaker Amy Hardie and Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres. The film follows a group of women who meet once a week at Maggie’s Dundee. All of them have advanced cancer.
The film will be followed by a Q&A discussion chaired by Lesley Howells, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Centre Head at Maggie’s Dundee.
The film is 45 minutes long, following a ground-breaking group bringing people with secondary cancer together. Five very different characters meet at the Maggie's Centre in Dundee to help and support each other through life with advanced cancer.
The documentary provides a unique insight into living with cancer and how these women develop exceptional relationships and help each other celebrate their lives in the face of death.
Meet a group of very different women who come together every Tuesday in Dundee. They laugh, they cry, they exchange shopping and cooking tips, and they support each other through life after a diagnosis of secondary cancer. One in three of us will develop cancer: it is a future most of us dread. This documentary shows that the reality is a bit more interesting, complicated and joyful than we fear – because once you've had the worst diagnosis, what is left to fear?
