Pageboy. A memoir. With Elliot Page and Mark Waschke

Due to high demand, this event has been moved to Stadthalle Köln in Köln-Mülheim. Tickets for the former location, Kulturkirche Köln, keep their validity.

In his newly released memoir Pageboy, actor Elliot Page recounts touchingly and honestly his long journey to finding himself. The leading role in "Juno" earned him his breakthrough in Hollywood, and catapulted him to a string of major roles and global fame. But what personal sacrifices did success entail? Elliot Page speaks frankly, courageously and movingly about growing up in the Canadian port city of Halifax, about his first visit to a queer bar, about a Hollywood fixated on traditional gender roles, about sex, love, trauma and success – and about his search for a fulfilling identity. An unblinking look behind the scenes of the dream factory and at the brutal mechanisms that drive the film industry. "Pageboy" challenges us to free ourselves from the expectations of others, and is an ode to self-determination, courage and a desire for life. Mod.: Marie-Christine Knop, German text: Mark Waschke
