"I was sat with my legs through railings on a bridge that hung 30ft above a stream, when the coach smashed into me and crushed me through the bars like play-doh. The pain should have been immense, but I wasn’t in my body, I wasn’t the one laying on a ledge, bleeding, precariously rolling ever so slowly toward my death – I was on the other side of the road watching it unfold.

This event explores near death experiences and how they affect people's lives. We explore the experiences of those who have been on, and beyond, the edge of death and lived to tell the tale.
The event includes a programme of short poetic films about life, death and what may or may not lie beyond, as well discussion with speakers including Christopher French, Professor of Psychology and Co-ordinator of the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit at Goldsmiths, University of London.
The ICA Cinema is completely ad-free. Please note the feature will start following a selection of trailers and information relevant to the ICA programme. All films are 18+ unless otherwise stated
Please note that a three minute short film will be screened before the first main feature every evening. Part of a rotating selection that changes weekly, the films shown are currently on tour to various arts venues across the country as part of Playback
