Arika Presents: The Polymath, or The Life and Opinions of Samuel R. Delany, Gentleman

September 30, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

Free - £8

Fred Barney Taylor’s documentary offers a portrait of Samuel R. Delany, black gay man, radical, and revered author of science fiction novels. Delany is also a well-regarded literary critic and academic with a candid and iconoclastic approach. He recounts his Harlem childhood, experiences with psychotherapy, and promiscuous adventures in the infamous Everard Baths and other public-sex venues. Interviews are juxtaposed with grainy home movies of Delany’s family and absorbing footage of the bridges, streets, trains, and skyscrapers of the writer’s native New York.

Samuel R. Delany will be present at and taking part in Arika’s Episode 9: Other Worlds Already Exist, 16th-19th November at Tramway, Glasgow. More info at www.arika.org.uk.
