NeuroCinema Presents: Control
No scheduled times
Neurosupport has been hosting a series of movies which all have a neurological condition at the heart of their stories.
After the success of our first five films - Hilary and Jackie, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Awakenings, Mo and Memento - Neurosupport are now pleased to present Control, the award-winning biopic of Ian Curtis (1956-1980), singer with the Manchester band Joy Division whose personal, professional, and romantic troubles led him to commit suicide at the age of 23.
Ian Curtis is a quiet and rather sad lad who works for an employment agency and sings in a band called Warsaw. He meets a girl named Debbie whom he promptly marries and his band, of which the name in the meantime has been changed to Joy Division, gets more and more successful. Even though Debbie and he become parents, their relationship is going downhill rapidly and Ian starts an affair with Belgium Annik whom he met after one of the gigs and he's almost never at home. Ian also suffers from epilepsy and has no-good medication for it. He doesn't know how to handle the feelings he has for Debbie and Annik and the pressure the popularity of Joy Division and the energy performing costs
This screening will be accompanied by a short talk by a specialist Epilepsy speaker.
