+ Q&A with Oasis’ graphic designer Brian Cannon and Manchester-based musician and journalist John Robb

Large as life and unrepentantly in-your-face, this documentary captures Manchester’s controversial and charismatic native sons Oasis, led by brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher, as it traces their journey to the height of chart success in the 1990s. Previously unseen backstage and live footage serves up the songs and the scenes of an era, the brawls and the brilliance alike.

The BFI is funding ‘Transformative Film Culture For Hull', as part of its National Lottery-funded BFI Film Audience Network and led by its lead partner BFI Film Hub North. Delivered through Hull 2017 and by Hull Independent Cinema and a unique partnership of film festival, educational and archive partners from across the north, the film programme will bring a packed programme of more than 400 screenings, one-off events and film festivals throughout the year to Hull and the region. The programme reflects the BFI’s activities across the UK to bring film to audiences where there is less opportunity for them to experience and engage in film, and to support local film networks and audience initiatives. There will be much to explore, celebrate and enjoy.
