What to expect?

Blueberry Blood and Bubblegum Joints is a modern folktale film piece and mixed medium exhibition by artist Charlie Fitz. Set on the coast, the film tells the story of a shielder who creates a companion out of everyday objects; exploring themes of invisibility, isolation, resilience, community and disability pride.


The film will be shown as part of Touretteshero’s Burnt Out in Biscuit Land event on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 June.
