Grant Morrison is one of the most popular writers in comics, and one of the most controversial. They are the Rock Star of Comics, a philosopher and chaos magician, who has used their comics to change both himself and their audience. They are living on the border between fiction and reality, and this is their story.
The film was produced in close collaboration with Morrison and features extensive interviews with them, as well as never before seen photos and documents spanning their childhood to the present day.
Complimenting Morrison’s own words are interviews with their closest collaborators and friends, including Frank Quitely, Douglas Rushkoff, Cameron Stewart, Phil Jimenez, Mark Waid, Geoff Johns, Jill Thompson, and many more. The film makes extensive use of found and abstract footage to make the documentary feel like a Morrison comic.
The film was shot in Scotland, England, California and New York over the course of 2009 and 2010, and was completed in September 2010. (Note: because of this, the film does not use Morrison’s preferred pronouns; no offense is intended.)
