Imagine....Philip Roth Unleashed - Part 1

Screening

Venue: BBC Tent

To mark the death of one of America’s greatest writers, an opportunity to see a two part Imagine special featuring Philip Roth’s last recorded television interview. After Portnoy's Complaint launched him as a new literary voice, not to mention a scandalous one, Philip Roth went on to be hailed by many as America's greatest living writer. Never afraid to look hard at the extremes of human experience, he has been both consistently controversial and intensely private. But now, having celebrated his eightieth birthday in his home town of Newark, New Jersey, Roth, in conversation with Alan Yentob, is ready to tell the whole story in this special two part film for imagine... Philip Roth Unleashed first shown in 2014.

Not suitable for children as this film contains very strong language and sexual references.
