Anarchy! McLaren Westwood Gang is being released to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the birth of Punk – but is about so much more than the short lived punk phenomenon and explores the notion of Malcolm McLaren as the great architect of British Punk. The film includes candid interviews with McLaren conducted in Paris and London, some stunning unseen footage about his childhood, his 1960’s activism, meeting with Vivienne Westwood, the Kings Road shops, and focuses on his key role in the Punk ‘anti-fashion’ and the Sex Pistols and many others. Three films in one: it’s a history of European Anarchism; a biog of McLaren and a compelling exposé of the real birth of the Sex Pistols (with contributions from The Clash, 101ers, Bow Wow Wow, Adam Ant, Boy George, Don Letts, Tony Wilson, Tracey Emin, Stuart Christie, Nick Egan, Vivienne Westwood).

A number of preview/festival screenings have already taken place for Anarchy! The McLaren Westwood Gang, with the film being screened as part of Don Letts’ Punk At The BFI season and at London’s seminal 100 Club to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the 100 Club Punk Festival of Sept 1976 featuring Sex Pistols, The Clash, Subway Sect, Siouxsie and The Banshees, The Damned, The Buzzcocks.

This is an exclusive SCOTTISH PREMIERE of Anarchy! McLaren Westwood Gang. There will be a Q&A session with Director and Producer Phil Strongman followed by live music.
