FISHING WITH JOHN with John Lurie In Conversation

This event has ended.

BFI Southbank

John Lurie’s Fishing with John is a charmingly deadpan (mis)adventure where the likes of Tom Waits and Willem Dafoe are coerced into a variety of ill-prepared fishing trips by the now mythically elusive musician and painter Lurie.

Acting as a surreal forbear to the ‘scripted reality’ shows of the Noughties, and pitched somewhere between a Discovery Channel travelogue and a hipsterised Beckett play, Fishing with John is a curiously heartwarming affair, mixing absurd high-stakes drama with laconically droll improvisation in a unique ode to friendship, danger and reckless fishing techniques. 130’

We are delighted to welcome Lurie for a post-screening satellite Q&A.

Tickets will be on sale for BFI Members December 4th, and general public December 11th.
