In honour of the artist and rebel George Acheson, this video commemorates his life, his work and his death during the 2020 pandemic. A profoundly moving love letter to a rebel who lived by his own rules.
George was STO Union’s associate artist for many years as well as the central figure in STO Union’s international hit show, 7 Important Things. From his life we can learn so much about the rise and fall of revolutions and the way of the ‘road less travelled’.
Directed and edited by Nadia Ross
with footage from the STO Union archive and George Acheson’s estate.
