My Name is Gerry Potter is a new documentary portrait of legendary Liverpool-born poet, performer, playwright and author Gerry Potter.

The documentary takes the audience on a journey through Gerry’s work, his favourite landmarks, childhood memories, the Liverpool gay scene and Manchester’s Canal Street.  At times controversial - Gerry’s work is brave and nothing is sacred – this probing documentary sees many old friends and collaborators share their memories of Gerry and his work.

The event featured Q&A panel with Gerry Potter and the director, Alex Negueruela.

Chaired and convened by Dr Andrew Moor (MMU)

We were honoured and delighted that Gerry will be performing a selection of his poetry (as featured in the film) as part of this event.
