Best Before Death
Part of the Documentaries Strand
This impressive documentary follows the always-intriguing artist Bill Drummond over a two-year period during his ambitious 12-year world tour. He works in Lexington, North Carolina, and in Kolkata, India, engaging with local communities through his art/work project. He builds beds, bakes cakes, makes soup and shines shoes. Drummond’s clear-sighted vision of what he’s doing is inspirational, practical and from the heart, and, though he receives a variety of reactions from amused to perplexed, he interacts with observers with charm and easy grace.

Best Before Death is nominated for the 2019 EIFF Audience Award.
The screening on Thursday 27th June will include a special performance by Bill Drummond and actor Tam Dean Burn.
