Man on Earth

Book Tickets
In this visceral, intensely intimate film, 65-year-old Bob has decided to end his own life after four years of living with Parkinson’s Disease.

Bob has lived fearlessly – he snuck off to Woodstock at 15, hung out with Blondie and the Sex Pistols and ended up designing bathrooms for Elton John, Janet Jackson and Versace. But when we meet him, Bob is being cared for by one of his sons. Trapped in a world of pain and unrelenting movement, he has decided to utilise the Death with Dignity law. Courtin Wilson’s camera stays unflinchingly close on the anger, sadness and joy of Bob’s last seven days while he continues to rail against his disease and says goodbye to family and friends.

Content Guidance: Film contains scenes on bereavement and death.
