The Isle of Man Arts Council Lecture 2022 presents In Conversation with Louis Theroux
As part of their annual lecture series, the Isle of Man Arts Council are proud to announce an evening of conversation with celebrated documentary maker and author, Louis Theroux.
Theroux is a genre-defining presenter best known for producing immersive documentaries that explore the controversial and complex aspects of the human condition.
Using a gentle questioning style and an informal approach, Louis has shone light on intriguing beliefs, behaviours, and institutions by getting to know the people at the heart of them – from the officers and inmates at San Quentin prison to the extreme believers of the Westboro Baptist Church; from male porn performers in California to young women with eating disorders in London.
Over the years, Louis has kept true to a way of working that is uniquely his own: by charming his subjects, he’s able to offer rounded portraits of the people involved in complex social issues and human dilemmas, while always resisting easy judgements.
In Conversation with Louis Theroux will allow the audience this intimate look at Louis’ life and documentaries, with the opportunity for a question and answer session during the event.
