Williams Story to premiere next month


Curzon Artificial Eye is hosting the world premiere of Williams next month in London, in association with Martini, Williams Martini Racing and Minnow Films.

Williams, a brand new documentary from BAFTA-winning director Morgan Matthews, is based on the 1991 book by Lady Virginia Williams - A Different Kind of Life.

The film features legendary racing footage, interviews with various much-loved F1 people including Sir Patrick Head, Sir Jackie Stewart, Nigel Mansell and Nelson Piquet and candid never-before-seen accounts of what really went on behind closed doors, an honest, authentic and incredibly revealing portrait of one of the most extraordinary stories in motorsport.

"I hope the fans enjoy the film as much as I've enjoyed being part of motor racing," said Frank Williams. "I'm glad that both the people behind the team and my family come out as the true heroes of the story."

"This film is a tale of two great loves in my father's life," added Claire Williams. "Everyone knows of Frank's pure passion for motor racing, but not everyone knows the remarkable story of my parents' marriage and how those two things co-existed during the highs and lows of the team's journey. I am pleased that it shines a light on exactly how instrumental my mother was in the team's success while also capturing the setbacks and her bravery in holding the family, and ultimately the business together, as the team went on to make history.

"We are incredibly proud of the film," she continued, "and its enduring message of what the human spirit is capable of achieving in the face adversity. I hope that is inspires people as much as my parents' story inspires me. As my dad would want it though, we are proud of our past but ready for the future. The most exciting part is our plan to build on Frank's legacy and write a new chapter in the Williams story - something we are building momentum towards.

Williams will play nationwide previews on Wednesday 2nd August and go on general cinema release and on Curzon Home Cinema from Friday 4th August.
