For No Good Reason: A film screening
September 29, 2016 |
6:30 pm to 9:30 pm
A film by Charlie Paul and made over the course of fifteen years, “For No Good Reason” explores the connection between life and art through the eyes of the seminal British artist, Ralph Steadman. Insightful, humorous, and visually stunning, this is a study in honesty, friendship and the ambition that drives an artist.
“For No Good Reason” is a riot of stories and images as we take a trip through the wild and dark days of Steadman’s time with ‘Fear & Loathing in las Vegas’ writer Hunter S. Thompson, the Rumble in the Jungle; gun fights with literary giant William S. Burroughs and his fiercely heart-felt politics.
This is an inventive, energetic, occasionally harrowing, but inspiring and uplifting film with contributions from Terry Gilliam, Richard E. Grant and music from Slash, All American Rejects, Jason Mraz, James Blake, Ed Harcourt and Crystal Castles.
