About this event

From GFT in the Glasgow-wide Alasdair Gray season This December, the GFT cinema takes part in the Glasgow-wide Alasdair Gray season with two unique screenings which celebrate the artist and writer. Introduced by Erik Sandberg, content manager at and followed by a Q&A with Alasdair Gray who chose the film - The Horse's Mouth. Independence Live will be live streaming the intro by Erik & Q&A with Alasdair Gray later. We cannot live stream the film. Film, The Horse's Mouth: This portrait of an eccentric artist stars Alec Guinness as aging, impoverished artist Gulley Jimson. After a spell in prison for harassment, Gulley moves uninvited into the luxurious apartment of a wealthy couple and begins a mural of ‘The Raising of Lazarus’ on their wall – destroying their home in the process. With grand visions, mainly fuelled by William Blake’s poems, and an unwillingness to concede to societal norms, this 1958 classic brilliantly captures the life of a man driven purely by his imagination. Director: Ronald Neame Cast: Alec Guinness, Kay Walsh, Renee Houston Year: 1958 Running Time: 1h 37m Monday 8 December Show Times 17:50
