The official Gran Turismo documentary--KAZ: Pushing the Virtual Divide--will launch January 22 through Hulu, Sony has announced. The movie, named after franchise creator Kazunori Yamauchi, will reveal historical footage and "never before told stories" from experts of the automotive and gaming industries.

Its release marks the 15th anniversary of the Gran Turismo series. Specifically, the movie will trace Yamauchi's career from his run as a professional racer to his founding of game studio Polyphony Digital.

KAZ: Pushing the Virtual Divide was developed over the period of a year and filming took place in 12 locations from around the world. Commercials and short film director Tamir Moscovici directed the movie, which was captured by Avatar virtual camera operator Anthony Arendt.

You can check out a roundtable session on Twitch about the movie with Yamauchi and Moscovici January 22. The event will also feature giveaways including $1 million worth of in-game credits for Gran Turismo 6, which launched exclusively for PS3 last month.
