St Kilda Writers Festival

Event Date: 29 May 2022

I have been writing a book about my own experience as a victim of child abuse and subsequent Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I touch on topics of how to deal with the Trauma and CPTSD through therapy of using photography, painting, film and text. From child abuse to drug abuse, from dealing with death to dealing in life, join award-winning film maker Simon Lamb on the 'off the rails' rollercoaster ride that's been his story so far. It's a true 'sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll' adventure, as Simon moves on from being sexually abused at school to modelling alongside some of the world's sexiest women. From there he works the doors of the world's best known clubs, shamelessly consuming the drugs he confiscates from others, before going on to work security for some of the biggest names in music like Madonna and U2. Things take a turn when Simon is forced to confront his own demons of depression and mental health. But it's death he also needs to face up to when his brother's killed in a tragic Swiss Alps skiing accident. This leads he and his mother on a cathartic journey to retrieve the body – and it's through documenting that story, and the countless tales of others that Simon has brought to the fore through his film making – that he finally comes to terms with telling his own trippy tale in its entirety. So don't miss out as this story teller of others finally turns the spotlight on himself, and shares with you his Memoirs of a Black Lamb.
