The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson

September 9, 2015 @ 7:30 pm

| £6.90

A meditation on mortality by legendary axe man Wilko Johnson. Served a death sentence by terminal pancreatic cancer, Johnson vows to live in the moment. Director Julien Temple’s overflowing visual cocktail serves up Bunuel, Tarkovsky, Cocteau and Michael Powell as fellow travellers on this death trip, with literary contributions from Shakespeare and Thomas Traherne.

This event is hosted by the Robert Burns Centre in partnership with the University of Glasgow.
Join Professor David Clark, Wellcome Trust Investigator, and members of the Glasgow End of Life Studies Group for a post-film discussion.
