Julian Schwanitz has made an interesting short poetic documentary about the legendary Scottish darts player Jocky Wilson. To watch the full film click here.

"Who is Jocky Wilson? 20 years ago every child in Kirkcaldy, on the east coast of Scotland, could answer this question. One of the best darts players ever, world champion in 1982 and 1989 - a national hero. But in '95 Jocky paid the price for his self destructive life style suffering from diabetes, arthritis, and depression he retired into a reclusive existence. In search of his myth, we follow the forces that shaped Jocky's hometown and its inhabitants as we discover lost memories of the man who once inspired the nation."
