Wake Up Punk at Glasgow Film Theatre

wake up punk

Monday 9 – Thursday 12 May, 2022

Has the legacy of punk been distorted and commodified beyond all recognition? Joe Corre most definitely thinks so. In 2016 the son of Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood burnt millions of pounds worth of punk-era memorabilia in protest. Nigel Askew’s freewheeling documentary recalls the energy and anarchy of the punk era and gives a voice to Corre’s fear that ‘punk has become part of business as usual’, but It also finds hope that the punk spirit survives in the guise of current protest movements, bringing the hunger for change into the hands of the people.
