Inspiring film by Co Down writer based on NSPCC ambassador’s life surviving abuse is now available to watch at home

The brutally honest and gritty, yet inspiring film – Sulphur and White – tells the incredible true story of David Tait – NSPCC supporter, ambassador and former trustee and brings to the big screen his harrowing experience of child sexual abuse, and the impact it had on his life.

Written by Susie Farrell, from Hillsborough, and directed by BAFTA and Emmy Award nominee Julian Jarrold, the film stars Game of Thrones actor Mark Stanley as David Tait plus Emily Beecham, Dougray Scott and Anna Friel.

The cinematic experience is now being brought to your homes and can be watched at:

David Tait MBE said: “When I was 10 I was abused by a group of men. It took a lot of time for me to come to terms with it and make it public, now my goal is to destigmatise sexual abuse. I’m convinced by removing the stigma people will cope with the problem better than in the past.

“Sulphur and White does three things, teach the world what sexual abuse actually is, show the collateral damage that someone is capable of doing and that there is redemption and a future. Now we have NSPCC and Childline – we have an alternative.

“Hopefully it can encourage people with a hidden past to talk about their own problems and wear them on their sleeve. The film will give an awful lot of people comfort going forward.”

David Tait has been a long-term advocate and supporter of the NSPCC, raising over £1.5 million for the charity by climbing Mount Everest five times. He was awarded an MBE in 2010 by The Queen for his services to children.

He continues to be a significant figure at the charity, speaking personally about his experiences to raise awareness and champion the work of the NSPCC at events the length and breadth of the UK.
