‘Gerry Anderson: A Life Uncharted’ launches on the big screen and Britbox in April!

The story of Gerry Anderson’s life has always been a great inspiration to me. It’s a tale of hard work, determination, building a strong team team, and bouncing back against insurmountable odds. Gerry had his fair share of successes and struggles which shaped his career and often left an impression on his work. A new documentary from The Format Factory and Anderson Entertainment entitled Gerry Anderson: A Life Uncharted, is set to tell the story of Gerry’s life and work in a new and remarkable way.

Utilizing over 30 hours of previously unpublished interviews, director Benjamin Fields, transforms audio recordings from Gerry Anderson himself, who passed away almost a decade ago, and uses suitably cutting edge deep fake technology to allow Gerry to candidly tell his own life story on screen.

Supplemented with additional interviews from those close to the man and his work, Gerry Anderson: A Life Uncharted promises an emotional account of Gerry’s often troubled life from a poverty-stricken childhood to becoming the creator and co-creator of some of the most successful television series in the world.

The film premieres on Sunday, April 9th at the BFI Southbank in London. Ticket sales will be launching in late February. This debut screening will be followed by a special Q&A with director/producer Benjamin Field, and producer Jamie Anderson. Gerry Anderson: A Life Uncharted is then set to tour UK cinemas, kicking off at The Electric, Birmingham on Friday, April 15th with performer and mimic Jon Culshaw hosting the event. Details of further screenings are set to be announced in the coming months.
