Never Going to beat you Film Premier March 2020

‘Never Going to Beat You’ was originally a drama play about domestic abuse written by the late playwright Jennie Buckman from Giants Theatre Company together with 18 Gypsy and Traveller women. After two successful shows at the Blue Elephant Theatre in 2016, Traveller Movement and Giant’s Theatre decided to adapt the play into a film.

The film is directed and produced by Jennie’s son Michael Buckman (Crispy Biscuit Films).

‘Never Going to Beat You’ threads together the varying and different stories of the 18 Gypsy and Traveller women, and it will raise awareness about domestic abuse within all communities.

The screening was followed by a panel discussion about domestic abuse, mental health and well-being within the Gypsy and Traveller communities.
