Thursday 14th April, London, UK: Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment is delighted to confirm the release of GAZZA, the story of one of England’s most iconic and controversial footballers. The film will be released on Digital Download from 2nd May and Blu-ray & DVD from 9th May.
Paul Gascoigne was the face of ‘90s Britain, the most celebrated young footballer in the world, and a newspaper editor’s dream. His on-ﬁeld brilliance was matched only by his oﬀ-ﬁeld antics, which the tabloid media ruthlessly exploited for a celebrity-obsessed audience.
GAZZA is an unﬂinching portrait of the ultimate tragic hero, whose love for the riches and limelight of fame proved to be his downfall. An unmissable documentary for any football fan, featuring interviews from friends, family, and former teammates and coaches including Alan Shearer, Bryan Robson, Paul Ince, Ian Wright and Terry Venables.
Best known for his work on the critically acclaimed documentary on cricket corruption, Death of A Gentleman (2015), GAZZA was directed by Sampson Collins and was produced by Gareth Dodds, Tom Wood, Vaughan Sivell & Will Kane with Keith Haviland & Mark Stewart credited as Exec Producers.
