Documentaries covering aspects of the videogame world are few and far between so Sony’s recent announcement that a biopic of Gran Turismo director, Kazunori Yamauchi, will soon be released comes as welcome news.
The documentary has been made to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Gran Turismo series which has sold over 68 million copies after just five numbered releases, with a sixth one launching this December.
Here’s the film’s synopsis along with its debut trailer:
“This film is about drive. It’s about the passion and creative drive of Kazunori Yamauchi, the architect behind Gran Turismo’s birth and breath-taking fifteen-year evolution. This film will trace his relentless willingness to challenge himself, to hold none of his past achievements sacred, and push beyond the virtual divide in his pursuit of perfection. Through the support of PlayStation, Kaz’s journey has forever changed the gaming and automotive landscape and in doing so, has redefined how we perceive the relationship between art, entertainment and culture.”
