ME, MY MOUTH AND I
Dir. Sophie Robinson | English | United Kingdom | 60 mins | Documentary
Follow Jess Thom – a woman with Tourette’s syndrome – whose exploration of neurodiversity through the work of Samuel Beckett makes art accessible to everyone, at the same time raises questions about cultural curation, who has access to theatre and who can perform it.
Join us after the film for a Q&A with Jess Thom, presented with support from the British Council.
