From 2000 to 2006, director Ceri Levy filmed behind the scenes alongside the Gorillaz creators, from first drawings, animations, music and the musicians, through to the faces behind the voices of Murdoc, 2D, Noodle and Russel Hobbs. Bananaz also has appearances from many of those who occasionally pass through the virtual band: Dennis Hopper, De la Soul, Ibrahim Ferrer, Dangermouse, Dan the Automator, D12, Bootie Brown and Neneh Cherry. The result, Bananaz, is a free-wheeling documentary, taking down the virtual walls of Gorillaz in an intimate, honest and often hilarious account of the working relationship between Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett and their extraordinary creative process.
