FROM BOOK TO FILM is an interactive session with both director and author showing and discussing the newly-released film Heaven’s Rage, inspired by the trans memoir of the same name. The session will cover the creative and technical process of screening a book.
HEAVEN’S RAGE is an imaginative autobiography. Reporting on feelings people don’t usually own up to, Leslie Tate explores addiction, cross-dressing and the hidden sides of families. Writing lyrically, he brings together stories of bullying, childhood dreams, thwarted creativity and late-life illness, discovering at their core the transformative power of words to rewire the brain and reconnect with life. ‘A Robin Red breast in a Cage / Puts all Heaven in a Rage’ – William Blake
