Bananaz!


The ever-present Gorillaz recently dropped Bananaz, a documentary a long time in the making.  From the days of Y2K to roughly when I was supposed to graduate college, filmmaker Ceri Levy followed and toured with Gorillaz collaborating with this unique foursome and creating amazing footage of behind the scenes action, original artwork, animations and music.  The film also features appearances by a few of the many Gorillaz collaborators over those 6 years, including: Dennis Hopper, De La Soul, Ibrahim Ferrer, Dangermouse, Dan the Automator, D12, Booty Brown and Neneh Cherry.  First screened at the Berlin Film Festival in 2008 to rave reviews, Bananaz recently became available to the masses via our good friend the internet, and you can watch all 92 minutes of it thanks to Babelgum.

"Unconventional, uncompromising filmmaking of the highest order" said Chris Tilly of IGN
