Aarhus Walks on Water and Doc Lounge Aarhus are happy to co-present Lorna Tucker’s documentary on Vivienne Westwood, the first film to encompass the remarkable story of Westwood, one of the true icons of our time, as she fights to maintain her brand’s integrity, her principles – and her legacy. Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist premiered at CPH:Dox 2018.
“I will get into it, but it’s so boring,” sighs Vivienne Westwood on the prospect of narrating her own life story. It’s a brave statement with which to open a debut documentary but, as filmmaker Lorna Tucker knows all too well, any study of this British fashion designer will prove anything but dull. Despite the endearing reticence of its subject, 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.
Tickets are 50 DKK.
