Gary Numan, Gemma Webb / Documentary / English

A unique insight into the troubled life and electric music of Gary Numan.

With his unique on-stage look and early embrace of electro-music, by the end of the 1970s Gary Numan was a massive star, with ‘Are Friends’ Electric?’ and ‘Cars’ huge hits. But while Asperger’s syndrome helped give him focus, when his career waned depression and anxiety took over. It took falling in love with Gemma, his biggest fan, to help him rediscover his passion and drive for music. A fascinating music documentary as he heads back on the comeback trail [PG]

    I am a Filmhouse member and should be able to buy tickets today, but I can't! Please advise!

    The "booking service" is utterly frustrating. Either let people book without an account or ensure that it actually works.
