WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Eh Joe was written by Samuel Beckett for television and aired on the BBC in 1966. Joe sits in his room sealed off from the world. A voice lures him to examine the shards of his rough life. As he wordlessly contemplates the voice's accusations, the entire wave of human emotion is captured on camera. The astonishing visual image and the voice's spoken word entwine together in a mesmerising farewell to life. The work is adapted and directed by Atom Egoyan and stars Michael Gambon as Joe, with Penelope Wilton as narrator.
