THE ICE KING

Dir: James Erskine
United Kingdom / 2018 / 89mins

The greatest ice skater of all time, John Curry transformed a dated sport into an art form and made history by becoming the first openly gay Olympian in a time when homosexuality was not even fully legal.

Always outspoken and often controversial, Curry was as rebellious as he was charming; ferociously ambitious yet bent on self-destruction. The Ice King charts his journey from young contender to Olympic Champion and on to achieve his dream of founding a touring skating company. While those who were closest to him remember his life and tragically early death, Curry himself is returned to the screen through archive interviews, candid personal letters and most of all through stunning footage of the athlete and artist on ice. 

Screening daily from 23rd February, check back for more times.
