Sick: Life and Death of Bob Flanagan

2 Sep 200624 Sep 2006

An award winning portrait about the life of Bob Flanagan, performance artist, poet and lifelong sufferer of cystic fibrosis. Flanagan is a vivid, caustic, engaging presence, yet continually amused by the contradictions of his situation. This is a testament to one man's battle with a body which has always failed him. Warning: While insightful and moving, the film is also extremely graphic and includes images and sequences that some viewers may find shocking and upsetting.
