Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist
First show: July 06
“It provides a fascinating, involving glimpse of both who Westwood was back in the day and who she is at this particular moment in time, so much so that we genuinely miss her once the credits begin to roll.” — The LA Times.
“Winningly showcases Westwood’s alternately gorgeous and head-scratching designs from across the decades.” — Original Cin.
With exclusive, unprecedented access, WESTWOOD: PUNK, ICON, ACTIVIST is the first film to encompass the remarkable story of Vivienne’s life, her fashion, her personality, her activism and her cultural importance.
Since igniting the punk movement with ex-partner and Sex Pistols’ manager Malcolm McLaren, Dame Vivienne Westwood has been redefining British fashion for over 40 years, and is responsible for creating many of the most distinctive looks of our time. The film blends archive, beautifully crafted reconstruction, and insightful interviews with Vivienne’s fascinating network of collaborators, guiding us on her journey from a childhood in postwar Derbyshire to the runways of Paris and Milan. This is an intimate and poignant homage to one of the true cultural icons of our time, as she fights to maintain her brand’s integrity, her principles and her legacy in a business driven by consumerism, profit and global expansion.
Directed by Lorna Tucker. 2018. 83 min. HD Digital.
