A documentary about the former Oasis frontman, Liam Gallagher: As It Was, will be making its market debut, with Altitude looking after international sales. Altitude will also co-distribute in the U.K. with Lorton Entertainment.
Liam Gallagher: As It Was, directed by Charlie Lightening, will be the emotional story of how one of the greatest rock frontmen went from the dizzying heights of his champagne supernova years in Oasis to living on the edge ostracised lost in the musical wilderness of boredom, booze and bitter legal battles. The film will see Liam emerging from Noel’s shadow managing the expectation going from being in the biggest band in the world to starting again alone, stripped bare, with no-where to hide.
“As It Was is a documentary about my musical comeback,” said Gallagher. “It covers the writing and recording of my first solo album, right through to playing it live for the very first time in my hometown of Manchester and around the world. I hope you enjoy the film… As You Were.”
Added Lightening: “Having known Liam both personally and creatively over the past 10 years, to see him back where he should be, and to see the reaction to him once again has been amazing. For Liam to let me in, to be there to capture it all, up close and personal and to tell the whole story in his own words makes for an amazing film. One of the greatest rock’n’roll comebacks of all times and you are there with him each step of the way.”
