AN ACCIDENTAL STUDIO
Available on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD on July 28, 2020
RLJE Films, a business unit of AMC Networks, will release AN ACCIDENTAL STUDIO on July 28, 2020 on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD. The documentary was directed and produced by Bill Jones (Boom Bust Boom), Kim Leggatt (Joy Division), and Ben Timlett (Anatomy of a Liar).

AN ACCIDENTAL STUDIO charts the early years of HandMade Films seen through the eyes of the filmmakers, key personnel, and the man who started it all: former Beatle George Harrison. With unreleased archive interviews and footage with Harrison, exclusive interviews with Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, Richard E. Grant, Neil Jordan, Ray Cooper and unseen interviews with Bob Hoskins, the film explores HandMade’s baptism by fire, the risk it took in producing uniquely crafted intelligent films and the stories that grew up around it.
The DVD and Blu-Ray will include a bonus feature of the Exclusive Premiere Q&A filmed live, featuring Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin, and Ray Cooper, presented by Sanjeev Bhaskar.
