{American: The Bill Hicks Story}


Known as an outlaw comic, Bill Hicks (one of my all time favorite comics) spent his life touring the world performing his act, whilst at the same time trying to deliver a message. He unfortunately succumbed to cancer at the early age of 32, just as his popularity was soaring. This documentary attempts to show us the man behind the message.

The documentary combines live action with an animation technique manipulating 1,000s of photographs to uniquely immerse the audiences in his world, which is re-told from the point-of-view of the people who shared it with him.

Look for this film in select theaters April 8th.
