Gary Numan: Android In La La Land
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
Android In La La Land is a celebration of a British music-making pioneer and the love story that helped him turn his life around.
At the end of the 1970s, Gary Numan found himself to be one of the world’s biggest-selling artists,* Are ‘Friends’ Electric?* and Cars were huge hits, no-one had heard, or seen, anyone like him.
Asperger’s syndrome helped forge Numan's ambition, his music and image, but it brought problems. At a time when the public knew little about the condition, the press labeled him a freak, one paper suggested his parents should have been doctored for giving birth to him.
Depression, near bankruptcy and a period in the wilderness followed. Then Numan fell in love with his biggest fan, and married her…
