Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist (15) 83mins

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 and starring Vivienne Westwood, Ben Westwood, Claire Wilcox, Andreas Kronthaler, Peppe Lorefice, Christopher Di Pietro, Carlo D'Amario, Bella Freud, Murray Blewett, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Christina Hemdricks, Carine Roitfeld and Pamela Anderson.

 

'Lorna Tucker's consistently entertaining, enthralled portrait of aberrant British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood'  Variety

'A gloriously eccentric one-off and a fashion original, she is an entertaining subject for this watchable documentary'  The Observer

'Dame-d by the very Queen she and her fellow punks once desired to "destroy", Vivienne Westwood has gone from national joke, ridiculed for her outré, rude fashion design, to national treasure, but at 76 she hasn't mellowed with age'  The Times

'You end up loving her and the film. This woman is unique'  Financial Times

'Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist uses interviews, archive footage and intimate fly-on-the-wall access to get (almost) to the heart of this remarkable woman; although one suspects that Westwood will always keep some secrets firmly up her sleeve'  Screen International
