Amazon Prime has bought the rights to a new documentary about Liverpool Football Club legend Steven Gerrard.
The film follows Stevie G’s story.
Born on the 30th May 1980 in Whiston, Merseyside, Steven Gerrard joined the Liverpool FC Academy at age 8. He left 26 years later, having won two FA Cups, three League Cups, one UEFA Cup, one FA Community Shield, one UEFA Super Cup and, in what is widely regarded as one of the most thrilling matches of all-time, one UEFA Champions League. He was named in the PFA Team of the Year a record eight times.
Make Us Dream takes a close-up look at the man behind the legend – taking in the highs of Istanbul, the inner conflict of staying loyal to his boyhood club and the turmoil of coming agonisingly close to the trophy that has always eluded him: The Premier League Trophy.
Director, Sam Blair, says: “Make Us Dream is an ambitious, cinematic film that reaches beyond sport. It tells a story that is both deeply personal and reflective of a wider story of our times. I’m very happy to be working with Amazon to give it a platform both in cinemas and Prime Video to reach as wide an audience as possible.”
The film will have a special UK-wide screening on the evening of Thursday 15th November, followed by a live on-stage interview with Steven Gerrard himself. It will then stream on Prime Video globally shortly after the theatrical release.
