London Film Schools' Head of Production Design Matt Button will screen his latest project, the BAFTA-winning Killed by My Debt. Jerome (Chance Perdomo, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) had managed to get a motorbike and a job as a courier when he got two traffic fines and bailiffs started calling. On a zero hour contract and wages sometimes less than £20, under increasing pressure, Jerome couldn't see a way out.
Following the film, we will be joined by Matt, director Joseph Bullman, and producer Chris Clough for a Q&A. Then join us afterwards for networking drinks in the café.

'Killed By My Debt should be played, on a loop, in the offices of Camden council, which issued Jerome’s tickets, and every other local authority that outsources its debt collection to bailiffs. It should be played in the offices of Newlyn, and every other bailiffs company. And at CitySprint the courier company, and every other firm that offers only zero-hours contracts. Oh, and the payday loan companies, too. If you haven’t yet seen this dramatisation lifting the lid on the reality of zero-hours contracts and payday loans, you should – but it’s not an easy watch." – ★★★★ The Guardian
★★★★★ – Rotten Tomatoes
"It's not often you can say that five stars aren't enough to do justice to a TV drama, but Killed By My Debt presents one of those occasions" - Carol Midgely, The Times
