Screening – Alasdair Gray: A Life in Progress

Timespan is pleased to host a screening of Alasdair Gray: A Life in Progress, a documentary film about, and an intimate portrait of, one of Scotland’s most celebrated artists.

Thursday 19 March, 7pm

The screening will be followed by a Q & A with the film’s maker Kevin Cameron.

Alasdair Gray is one of the giants of Scottish Arts, gaining a reputation as a great writer, artist, notorious drunkard, irrascible interviewee and controversial essayist. In this intimate portrait, filmed over the course of 15 years, he has allowed himself to be filmed creating work that has become part of the living heritage of Scotland. This feature length documentary gets behind the hype, revealing a character who is by turns incisive, chaotic and laugh out loud funny.
