General admission

In the wake of its first sold-out event spotlighting producer Christine Vachon, the Phi Centre’s In Conversation series continues with a second distinguished guest Henry Rollins.

Punk icon and lead singer for the ground-breaking Black Flag and Rollins Band, Henry Rollins is also a journalist, author, publisher, actor, and globe-trotter. This multi-disciplinary performer calls on his extensive experience and talents as a spoken word artist to deliver a sometimes biting critique of some of the most controversial aspects of American culture. A skilled wordsmith, Rollins pulls no punches in his efforts to raise public awareness to the issues that concern him. An outspoken straight talker, he promises to deliver a hard-hitting and enthralling talk.

Rollins’ talk will be followed by a question period and the screening of He Never Died. Jack, an immortal cannibal played by Rollins who has withdrawn from society to try to control his base instincts, survives by buying blood on the black market. A budding romance with a waitress and his desire to protect her teenage daughter lead him into the criminal underworld as the bodies start to pile up. Written and directed by Jason Krawczyk, this fascinating film noir paints a compelling portrait of a bloodthirsty anti-hero who may be supernatural but, despite himself, is still profoundly human.

Please note that the conversation will be in English and will be moderated by Michael-Oliver Harding.

This event will be filmed, and webcast on a future date. A photographer will also be onsite.
