Director Steve Sullivan pieces together Sievey’s split personality through an extensive archive of personal notebooks, movies, art and music, alongside insights from his closest confidants, including Johnny Vegas, Jon Ronson, John Cooper Clarke, Ross Noble, and more. What he uncovers is an intimate portrait of a sensitive, tortured outsider artist, forever on the outside looking in.
The film has been produced, directed and edited by filmmaker Steve Sullivan. Steve collaborated with Frank Sidebottom and Chris Sievey on the 2006 documentary Magical Timperley Tour, an open top bus tour of the beauty spots and civic amenities of Timperley.
Steve's previous films have won awards internationally. He is best known for his short film A Heap Of Trouble, a musical about naked men, which won the grand jury prize at the Montreal Comedy Festival, a BAFTA Cymru for Best Short Film, and has screened at over 100 film festivals around the world.
The film is due for general release Spring 2019.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Steve.
