Looking for Lowry is a new documentary by film maker Margy Kinmouth about the works of the Salford artist famous for his Matchstick Men and inspiration for Northern Ballet's A Simple Man.
The film features Sir Ian McKellen, Noel Gallagher and a host friends and admirers of Lowry's work as they discover more about his life, his upbringing and living under the thumb of a mother who didn't like him to paint.
The film also features Northern Ballet rehearsing their signature work A Simple Man with choreographer Gillian Lynne.
Looking for Lowry is sure to be an insightful and emotional vision.
