End of the Wicked, End of the Road

Kings of the Road (Axiom)

I’M READY FOR MY CLOSE-UP, Friday 17 June, 5-5:30pm, Resonance 104.4 FM

To celebrate the publication of The End: An Electric Sheep Anthology, a collection of essays that explores the darker side of cinema, the book’s editor Virginie Sélavy will talk to two of the contributors: Jason Wood will discuss the endings of road movies and Nicola Woodham will talk about End of the Wicked, a Nollywood film about child witches.

Nicola Woodham is a writer and filmmaker who has written broadly on Nigerian evangelist horror films. Jason Wood is the director of programming for Curzon cinemas and the author of several books on cinema, including The Faber Book of Mexican Cinema and 100 Road Movies.

To buy The End: An Electric Sheep Anthology (price £13.99), please go to our publishers’ website, Strange Attractor Press.

Wim Wenders’s Kings of the Road, which Jason Wood discusses in his article and in the radio show, is available on DVD from Axiom Films.
