Dame Vivienne Westwood is Punk Rock’s Grand Dame. One time agent provocateur, the doyenne of British fashion, an eco-conscious boudicca and one of the most influential originators in history.
The film explores her uphill struggle to success, looking closely at her artistry, her activism and her cultural significance. Blending iconic archive and newly shot observational footage, this era defining,intimate origins story will be told in Vivienne’s own words, and through touching interviews with her inner circle of family, friends and collaborators. WESTWOOD: PUNK, ICON, ACTIVIST is the first film to encompass the remarkable story of one of the true icons of our time, as she fights to maintain her brand’s integrity, her principles- and her legacy.
Starring Vivienne Westwood, Ben Westwood, Claire Wilcox, Andreas Kronthaler, Peppe Lorefice

“The life of this visionary entrepreneur is far bigger than a single film, but director Lorna Tucker does a decent job of compacting Westwood’s iconoclastic legacy.” – Monica Castillo, Little White Lies
“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.”
– Nikki Braughan, Screen International
