How To Have Sex

Directed by Molly Manning Walker

Molly Manning Walker’s startlingly frank and stylish UK debut, about a wild teen holiday gone awry, tackles thorny issues of coercion and consent head on.

This highly kinetic and slyly subversive film focuses on Tara, a teenager on holiday with friends in pursuit of drinks, sun and sex at a Cretan resort. But when a night of hedonism turns sour, Tara starts to question her experience, her friendships and her own future, even as the neon-soaked, endless partying continues around her. 

The screenings on Fri 3 Nov, 20:40, Mon 6 Nov, 18:25 and Wed 8 Nov, 16:20 will be followed by a short 10-minute pre-recorded Q&A with director Molly Manning Walker hosted by Melanie Iredale, director of Reclaim The Frame.
