The idea of doing a partnership creative project emerged and the idea for the Pulled Both Ways Film project came about. The idea was to work with local young people to highlight the negative impacts when parent argue over custody and possessions during a divorce and how children can literally feel ‘pulled both ways’.
Working with students from New College Leicester and Leicester High School for Girls, the project has created 3 short films which will be used by solicitors and mediators to encourage divorcing parents to choose mediation as a more positive option to court proceedings where custody of children is involved.
The premiere of the film will be held at Highcross Leicester Showcase Cinema De-Lux Director’s Lounge on Thursday 30th June 2016, 12.30-1.30pm. They have kindly provided the cinema free of charge. The young people involved and invited guests from the legal profession and other local business people will be the first to see the film. There are plans to distribute the films to family solicitors and lawyers to be used across Leicestershire and beyond.
