The unlikely story of Glaswegian visual artist, Stephen Skrynka, and his dangerous life-long obsession with riding the ‘Wall of Death’.
Stephen Skrynka has set his sights on the most death-defying, the most captivating, the most elusive of all fairground attractions – the Wall of Death. All his life, the Glaswegian visual artist has dreamt of performing the anti-gravity, motorbike-riding feat and as with all true obsessions, his determination to master the Wall only seems to grow in the face of (moderate) failure.
Following Stephen over years of attempts to ride and eventually to build the Wall of Death, this endearing film is as much about the price we pay for our obsessions, as it is about finding community and kindred spirits through art.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Maurice O’Brien and producer John Kelleher.
