HE NEVER DIED (UK Premiere)

HND-SXSW-Still

Starring Henry Rollins, the frontman of legendary punk band Black Flag, He Never Died follows Jack – who’s in a rut. Depression and severe anti-social behaviour has whittled down his existence to sleeping and watching television. Seeing the human race as little more than meat with a pulse, Jack has no interest to bond with anyone. There’s little purpose for him to make friends with someone he’d eventually eat or outlive by more than a millennia. The fuse is lit when Jack’s past comes back to rattle him. Jack must now walk a tight rope of sobriety and try to eat as few people as possible in this violent tale of personal responsibility.
