Russell Brand documentary explores growing inequality

Russell Brand explores growing inequality in hard-hitting documentary by director Michael Winterbottom.


Brand’s cheeky humour and man-about-town persona allows him to ask some difficult questions on growing levels of disparity in the UK. Focusing on interviews with politicians and bankers, the documentary explores the reasons behind the financial crash and what the effects have been.

Technicolor’s Ben McIIveen worked on conforming the large range of archive material that helps to bring the documentary’s message across with vigour. Ben described working on a Michael Winterbottom feature, a director he has always admired, as an honour.

Technicolor London provided conform, grade and online for The Emperor’s New Clothes.
