I am looking forward to seeing Mr. Somebody? a new documentary about Jake Mangle-Wurzel, a genuine eccentric and one-off who has lived in Yorkshire for years. The film is a passion project for director Michelle Heighway, who I interviewed tonight. She’s spent six years documenting Jake’s life and culled the film down from 60 hours of footage to just 59 minutes. It screens at Sheffield Doc/Fest on Saturday and again on June 12. Here’s a pic.
Mr. Somebody? A question we should ask everyone.
