The Colours of Kenny Roach
The Colours of Kenny Roach is a warm, funny and deeply moving drama about creativity, the nature of the artist and the self-destructive impulse of addiction. Kenny is a Glaswegian artist and lecturer; talented, charismatic, charming. But even his wife cannot save him from the demons that turn his colourful world to black. Projection, music and true-life accounts combine in an honest, humorous and heart-breaking portrait of one man’s struggle with his art and his battle with addiction as he fights for his life.
