Hailed as ‘William Faulkner by way of B-movie film noir, porn paperbacks, and Sun Records rockabilly’ poet, author and screenwriter Barry Gifford has given the world more than forty works including the Sailor and Lula novels that inspired Wild At Heart. Rob Christopher brilliantly brings to life Gifford’s autobiographical collection The Roy Stories, capturing a childhood in a vanished 1950s Chicago through a jazzy, impressionistic combination of beguiling archive footage, animation and spoken word (Willem Dafoe, Lili Taylor) that is reminiscent of Terence Davies’ Of Time And The City.

Thanks to Rob Christopher
