Love, Scott

In October of 2013, a young gay musician left the bar to walk home, unaware that his life was about to be irrevocably altered. Turning the corner up a street in small town Nova Scotia, Scott Jones was viciously attacked and left paralysed from the waist down; what follows is a brave and fragile journey of healing and the transformation of a young man’s life.

Accompanying Scott for three years after he was attacked, the film takes us on a poignant and thought-provoking journey as Scott navigates the aftermath of his attack as he learns to move through life in a wheelchair and explores forgiveness for his attacker.

Filmed by Scott’s best friend, the documentary offers a rare window into the journey of surviving an attempted murder and an  evocative window into queer experience, set against a stunning score by Sigur Rós.

This screening will be followed by a post-film discussion with Disability Direct and Derby council led by Derbyshire LGBT+.

Screening in partnership with Derbyshire LGBT+ for National Hate Crime Awareness Week.
