THE DEATH OF FILM

WILL SELF

Will Self is the author of eleven novels, seven short story collections, and seven essay collections. He is a prolific journalist and has contributed to a plethora of major world publications over the years. Self is also a renowned broadcaster, appearing regularly on television and radio; he currently holds the Chair in Contemporary Thought at Brunel University. In this highly engaging performance, Self takes a searing look at ISIS beheading videos, CGI, the wagon wheel illusion, Oliver Sacks and Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris, and says anyone who “slumps uncritically in front of a screen is a dupe and a fool.”
