Four years ago Chris Hewitt and his son Tom Hewitt rescued an abandoned film project about Martin Hannett started in 1995 by Manchester video and flyposting entrepreneur Tosh Ryan. Piecing together 1990s interviews by Tosh and Jon Ronson with up to date interviews by Chris and Tom with other people involved in Martin Hannett’s life and career in music -a final in depth film lasting 3 hours 47 minutes is set for release on DVD.
As Martin was always fascinated with the number 23 whenever it occurred in his life or the life of his friends it is appropriate that the preview of the film should be shown 23 years to the day Martin died. 10thApril 2014
