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. [12A]

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.
