Bright Lights Cinema Series: ‘Long Live My Happy Head’

December 8 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST

What would you do if you were told you had a dramatically life-shortening illness when you were 32 years old? Start making comic books about it of course!

Gordon is a Scottish comic book artist with a big bushy beard, very expressive eyebrows—oh, and an inoperable, incurable brain tumor. By making autobiographical comics about his experience, he is able to communicate his thoughts and reactions to cancer in a medium and a language that is disarming, accessible, and inviting.

Discussion with directors Will Hewitt and Austen McCowan to follow.

Documentary; English
