At Duke of York's, Brighton, we're delighted to welcome director Toby Amies for a live Q&A following the screening, hosted by legendary bass guitarist Guy Pratt. 

King Crimson is a band that people literally are dying to be in. In the Court of the Crimson King is a dark, comic film for anyone who wonders whether it is worth sacrificing everything for just a single moment of transcendence.

For over 50 years Robert Fripp, also famous for his work with Bowie and Eno, has overseen a unique creative environment in which freedom and responsibility conspire to place extraordinary demands on the band’s members - only alleviated by the applause of an audience whose adoration threatens to make their lives even harder.

It's a rewarding and perilous space in which the extraordinary is possible, nothing is certain, and not everyone survives intact.
