123 mins - United Kingdom 2023 - Documentary Director: Jake West Featuring: Howard Arundel, John Barry and Max Beesley Snr Jake West’s documentary retraces the life of a singular individual: Cliff Twemlow, an opportunistic, fascinating figure of Manchester’s counterculture of the 1980s. Self-made star and film producer for the direct-to-VHS market, Twemlow built up a motley crew of fellow would-be actors eager to appear on-screen - any screen. MANCUNIAN MAN, a window into a period when video stores reigned supreme, also reflects its subjects’ tremendous creative energy. Cliff and his friends created a genre of their own, driven by a deep desire to make movies. Jake West revives the legend for today’s audiences. Twemlow, famed for his banned film, "G.B.H.", built a low-budget film empire from 1982-1993 with a devoted team of diverse individuals. With innovative video technology, self-composed music, and minimal budgets, he pioneered an array of films in genres like gangster, horror, thriller, and sci-fi. Director Jake West and Severin Films now unravel Twemlow's remarkable and genuine story through exclusive interviews, captivating film clips, and rare backstage footage. “An essential watch
