Barlinnie Special Unit 50th Anniversary: 'Silent Scream' Film Screening
To mark the 50th Anniversary of the Barlinnie Special Unit - the experimental therapeutic facility designed in sharp contrast to Peterhead's segregation unit - we're doing something special. We're presenting a special film screening of 'Silent Scream', the 1990 film based on the true story of one of Barlinnie Special Unit's residents, Larry Winters. We'll be joined for a Q&A session by the film's writer Bill Beech and the psychotherapist Sara Trevelyan who was married to one of the unit's other prisoners - Jimmy Boyle. A short presentation will be included and it will be followed by a short drinks reception. Book here.
