Billy Connolly is at the peak of his powers in this newly restored and rediscovered film.
Capturing 'The Big Yin' on and off stage during his 1975 tour of Ireland, Big Banana Feetis a captivating record of Connolly on the cusp of international stardom.
Inspired by the fly-on-the-wall style of DA Pennebaker's Bob Dylan documentary Dont Look Back, director Murray Grigor and cinematographer David Peat present Connolly at his beguiling best, using humour and charm to successfully navigate the political tensions of 1970s Dublin and Belfast.
Featuring iconic stand-up material alongside fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpses, this previously elusive milestone of British comedy is now newly restored in 2K (from original 16mm materials), reaffirming the genius that has endeared Connolly to generations of fans.
