In this masterclass, screenwriter Sophie Henderson explores how to build a story

with empathy that connects with its audience. She argues for character authenticity

over likeability and talks about putting your whole self into your script. This session

is presented by Department of Post. Sophie is introduced by actor and director

Lucy Wigmore.
