Kirkcaldy Man / Człowiek z Kirkcaldy

Running time: 18'

GBR 2011, 18’

Twenty years ago every child on the east coast of Scotland knew who Jocky Wilson was. The best darts player of all time. The world champion. A national and folk hero. But since 1995 he has been paying the price for his self-destruction. Illness, isolation, depression. The rise and fall of this working class hero, not unlike those seen in pop music, is reflected in parallel to the decline of the region and of his home, the coal-mining town of Kirkaldy.
