Session Times



Since igniting the punk movement with her former partner and Sex Pistols’ manager Malcolm McLaren, Dame Vivienne Westwood has been redefining British fashion for decades with her signature wit and unwavering activism. Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist sees the sartorial iconoclast reflect on over 40 years of revolutionary work — from postwar Derbyshire to the runways of Milan — intimately following her journey through existential crises, major successes, storied love affairs and political demonstrations.

★★★★ "The documentary her fascinating life and career demands."
— Time Out
"As sharp-lined as one of Westwood's showiest catwalk gowns."
— Variety

Why You Should See This Film

How can one maintain their integrity in a business driven by consumerism, profit and global expansion? This is just one of the many poignant quandaries addressed by Westwood throughout this fascinating documentary homage, blending archival footage, beautifully-crafted reconstruction and spirited interviews with the Dame herself.
