Left Bank Doc Club Presents: Not a F***ing Horror Story

Not a F***ing Horror Story follows Otto Baxter, a 35-year-old man with Down’s Syndrome, over six years, as he writes and directs a foul-mouthed, autobiographical comedy-horror-musical set in Victorian London. Otto, who has always struggled to explain how he feels, uses his film 'The Puppet Asylum' to explore his birth, adoption and his epic battle with ‘The Master’ – an evil magician hell-bent on controlling his life.

During the filmmaking process Otto’s birth mother dies and he finds himself confronting life in the real world, including his future. Otto’s filmmaker friends Bruce Fletcher and Peter Beard help him to bring his vision to life, but also learn more about his unique perspective on the world and how they can play a role in his future...

Join us for a very special screening of this moving documentary followed by a Q&A with Directors Otto Baxter, Peter Beard and Bruce Fletcher, hosted by Anna Hall Trustee of Left Bank Leeds Charitable Trust and Creative Director at Candour Productions. After the Q&A we will of course be showing Otto's film 'The Puppet Asylum' to make for a double-feature you won't want to miss.
