Kevin Gaffney

Synopsis

Blackball is a montage of surreal nocturnal happenings. The character, performed by Gaffney, lives in a staged set-up in an apple orchard, which he destroys. A car pulls up and in its headlights we see him buried under leaves shovelled by an unseen second person, before the scene changes to an empty fairground at night with horses spinning aimlessly.'
