Gorillaz to release documentary film

'Bananaz' goes behind the scenes of animated band

Gorillaz have revealed they are to release a documentary film that goes behind the scenes of Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett‘s animated band.

‘Bananaz’ will be the first film to capture the reality behind the multi-platinum band that was created following a late-night conversation between Albarn and animator Hewlett in 2000.

The film is being made by the band’s longtime friend Ceri Levy, who produced Blur‘s 1994 documentary ‘Starshaped’.


It will be sold and distributed internationally by HanWay Films.

A release date is yet to be confirmed.
