The Bruce Lacey Experience
Fri 11 Apr 2014 Glasgow Film Theatre, GFT Cinema
Screening and special Q&A with directors Jeremy Deller and Nick Abrahams, hosted by Francine Stock

Over the past four decades, the artist Bruce Lacey has been oddball comedian, actor, painter and sculptor, inventor of robots and automata, post-hippy shaman and guru to bands of new age travellers.

He has also been celebrated in song by the Fairport Convention and been made the subject of a documentary by Ken Russell. He played George Harrison’s gardener in the Beatles movie Help! and created props for The Goons.

Known for his irreverent humour and outspoken views, Lacey figured prominently on London’s counter-culture scene in the 1960s and, aged 87, he remains just as creative today.

In this fascinating documentary, Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller and filmmaker Nick Abrahams reveal Bruce Lacey and his work in all its uplifting and inspiring glory.

Jeremy Deller and Nick Abrahams will join us for a special Q&A after the screening, hosted by Francine Stock, presenter of Radio 4’s The Film Programme.

Directors: Jeremy Deller, Nick Abrahams

UK 2012, 1h13m, N/C 18+
