Asta's back!

Posted on 15th March 2016

On 14 March 2016 the Media Department hosted a very welcome return visit from filmmaker Asta Philpot.

Born in the United States, Asta is a disabled filmmaker whose work has chronicled his own extraordinary and often controversial life experiences.

He is best known for his work on the 2007 BBC documentary ‘For One Night Only’, the 2013 movie ‘Hasta La Vista’ and the 2014 Channel 4 documentary ‘Sex on Wheels’. He has most recently been working with VICE on a programme for the American market.

Media Studies programme leader Lesley Albon said: “Asta is a guest speaker whose success in the media really inspires our students. It’s a great pleasure to have him visit us again.”
