gorillaz1This incredible film, “Bananaz” removes the secretive, mucky walls of Gorillaz, the cartoon band created by artist Jamie Hewlett & musician Damon Albarn, smashing down all artificial barriers to reveal the full and filthy details behind this awe-inspiring band. Audiences see just what director Ceri Levy saw over seven years of mayhemical creative madness… a lot of it too graphic for mortal eyes to behold…Bananaz is Levy’s story of the partnership & community behind Gorillaz. He takes you into the studio and out onto the road with this virtual phenomenon, showing a part of Gorillaz never seen before – reality. As one radio interviewer puts it, “It’s a parallel universe – these guys aren’t in the band but they know the animated characters who are”. Bananaz is an honest, often hilarious account of the working relationship between Albarn & Hewlett, and the rise to success with Gorillaz – from the initial embryonic conception through to global domination. Also in focus are many of the conspirators & collaborators that came along for the ride, including Dennis Hopper, De la Soul, D12, Ibrahim Ferrer, Bootie Brown, Dangermouse & more. Contains strong language. WARNING: Some footage in this film includes a strobing effect, which may affect viewers with photo-sensitive epilepsy and other such conditions.

  1. Dennis Hopper’s in this? What does he do? I mean I love Hopper, I even have him as the voice on my GPS that i got from a site called Navtones. They do real celebrity voice like Mr. T, Burt Reynolds, Gary Busey…

    Hopper seems to do a lot of voice work nowadays. I will have to watch this film to see what he’s up to in this.

    Nice one!

  2. Dennis Hopper is awesome! I haven’t been able to see Bananaz, but I know Hopper was the narrator of the song/story “Fire Coming out of the Monkey’s Head” from the Demon Days Album by Gorillaz. I can see why, his voice is so cool.
