'80s and '90s Manchester music fixture Frank Sidebottom hid a creative giant who was both defined and smothered by that whopping papier-mâché head. Played by Michael Fassbender in the 2014 cult film Frank, the real character of Frank Sidebottom stalked Manchester’s music and comedy scene for over 25 years and found nationwide fame on TV. But who really knew Chris Sievey, the fractured genius underneath the mask? 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 Jon Ronson, Ross Noble, and more.
