After the screening we’ll be joined by director James Erskine for a Q&A.

John Curry transformed ice skating from a dated sport into an exalted art form. Coming out on the night of his Olympic win in 1976, he became the first openly gay Olympian at a time when homosexuality wasn’t even fully legal. Toxic yet charming, rebellious yet elitist, emotionally aloof yet spectacularly needy, ferociously ambitious yet bent on self-destruction, he was a man forever on the run – from his father’s ghost, his country and himself. The Ice King is a searing documentary about a lost cultural icon, and a story of art, sport, sexuality and rebellion.
