First Look At "Light Side: A Journey With David Prowse"
There's a new documentary heading to cinemas this December.
The film is titled LIGHT SIDE: A JOURNEY WITH DAVID PROWSE
and will explore the life and career of Prowse, the British
actor who famously portrayed Darth Vader in the original
Star Wars trilogy.
UK based film distributor Quantum Digital has secured a
cinema release across multiple territories for the new
feature-length independent documentary...
Taking a new and different approach to how it explores the
actor's career path, the film aims to appeal to art house
audiences as well as Star Wars fans. Besides playing Darth
Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy - the most famous
screen villain in the history of cinema - Prowse was also
in Stanley's Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange and trained
Christopher Reeve for 1978's Superman, and was awarded an
MBE by the Queen at Buckingham Palace in 2000, all of which
he talks about.
It's no secret David has had a love/hate relationship with
the franchise that made him famous back in 1977. And ever
since his voice was dubbed over in favour of James Earl
Jones, it seems his outspoken bitterness has burned more
bridges than mended. It's reported he's even been banned
from attending official Lucasfilm events and he's since
retired from making public appearances all-together. This
documentary from Quantum Digital looks to perhaps heal
some of those old wounds.
The director of the film, Marc John, says...
"LIGHT SIDE is unlike anything else you've seen about
David Prowse. We also explore his best known character in
a way which I don't think audiences will be expecting. But
this is not a Darth Vader fan film. It is a documentary.
It has been a privilege to work with David Prowse in the
making of this film. I believe we have a fascinating and
highly original documentary on our hands."

Tickets go on sale mid-October when the cinema list is
