Wesley Willis - Joyrides at CINEFAMILY

Thursday, 8pm | Wesley Willis' Joyrides @ Cinefamily

Despite impossible odds, self-proclaimed rock 'n roll star and "Chicago City Artist" Wesley Willis became an underground rock icon, revered artist and hero to many before his untimely death in 2003. Through his force of personality, his drawing talents, his unique vocabulary and an incredibly focused and singular songwriting style, Wesley’s creativity attracted people from all walks of life, and helped him to overcome the daily torment of schizophrenia, a haunting condition which plagued him throughout his adult life.

Directors Kim Shivley and Chris Bagley will be here live at the Cinefamily for a Q&A after the screening, and Peanut Butter Wolf will be spinning records both before and after the films!
