Being Frank is a feature length documentary film, telling for the first time the true story of the life and work of artist Chris Sievey.
Made with exclusive access to Chris' personal archive and the co-operation of his family, the film will explore the astonishing life and career of this most maverick of artists from the point of view of the people who knew him best.
Being Frank will take the audience from Chris' earliest days as a teenage singer/songwriter cutting demos at Apple, through the Punk-Pop heyday of his band The Freshies, to the birth and hilarious career of his most enduring creation, Frank Sidebottom.
Many were fans of Frank Sidebottom, but few were privileged to know the man behind the mache. This is a chance to finally meet the real Chris Sievey, through never-before-seen archive and the memories of his family, colleagues and close friends.
