YOU’RE HUMAN LIKE THE REST OF THEM: THE FILMS OF BS JOHNSON

Dir. Various

UK 1967 - 1974 | Colour & Black and White | 160 mins | Cert 15

Although perhaps best known for groundbreaking novels such as The Unfortunates and Christy Malry’s Own Double-Entry, B.S. Johnson was also the director of a number of extraordinary and daring films that have been out of circulation for decades. You’re Human Like the Rest of Them brings these rare and fascinating works together for the first time, revealing Johnson to have been as radical and inventive a filmmaker as he was a writer. The set includes new HD transfers of such films as Paradigm and Fat Man on the Beach, and also features the newly-rediscovered BBC adaptation of Johnson’s play Not Counting the Savages (1972), directed by Mike Newell.
