‘King Rocker’ has been selected by Sheffield Documentary Festival 2020 for it’s worldwide premiere. The world’s leading non–fiction film festival have picked the brand new production from Fire Films to feature as part of their 2020 programme, it will be available to watch in the cinema or Sheffield Doc/Fest Selects in the Autumn.
Comedian Stewart Lee and director Michael Cumming (Brass Eye) investigate a missing piece of punk history: Robert Lloyd, best known for fronting cult bands The Prefects and The Nightingales, has survived under the radar for over four decades. Anti-rockumentary King Rocker weaves the story of Birmingham’s undervalued underdog autodidact into that of the city’s forgotten public sculpture of King Kong, eschewing the celebrity interview and archive-raid approach for a free-associating bricolage of Indian food, bewildered chefs, vegetable gardening, prescription medicines, pop stardom and pop art.
