Almost Fashionable: A Film About Travis (1 x 60’) sees music critic Wyndham Wallace (The Guardian, The Quietus Uncut, Classic Pop) invited to cover a Mexican tour of one of his least favourite bands. Through a series of candid interviews with the band, passionate fans and other music journalists, Wyndham attempts to understand the reason for his resentment. What follows is an unexpected meditation on life, friendship and, ultimately, the power of music.

Winner of the Audience Award at the Edinburgh Film Festival 2018, the film is directed by Travis singer-songwriter Fran Healy and edited by Sarah Iben with cinematography from Cristian Pirjol. Gezellig Studio produced the film in association with Final Cut USA. Limonero Films has acquired the global broadcast, digital, educational and in-flight entertainment rights to the film.

Added Limonero managing director Pamela Martinez Martinez: “We’re delighted to represent Almost Fashionable: A Film About Travis around the world. It´s a fun, joyful film that I’m sure will delight fans of the band and those who love music documentaries that delve deep into human emotions. The film is sure to surprise people by its rumination on the UK’s music journalism industry through candid and illuminating interviews.”

“I’m delighted to be working with Limonero on my debut film,” said Fran Healy: Pamela has a passion, persistence and responsiveness that shows not only in her enthusiasm toward our film, but all the films she represents.”
