WEST­WOOD: PUNK. ICON. AC­TIVIST (M)

With ex­clu­sive, un­prece­dented ac­cess, West­wood: Punk.

Icon. Ac­tivist is the first film about the grand dame of punk and en­fant ter­ri­ble of Bri­tish fash­ion, Vivi­enne West­wood. The film ex­plores her up­hill strug­gle to suc­cess, look­ing closely at her artistry, ac­tivism and cul­tural sig­nif­i­cance. Blend­ing iconic ar­chive and new footage, this in­ti­mate story is told in West­ward’s own words and through in­ter­views with her in­ner cir­cle. West­wood: Punk. Icon. Ac­tivist is the re­mark­able story of a true icon of our time as she fights to main­tain her brand's in­tegrity, her prin­ci­ples and her legacy. The viewer joins West­wood at a piv­otal time as her com­pany opens flag­ship stores in the fash­ion cap­i­tals of Paris and New York. What be­gins as a cel­e­bra­tion of the brand across its busiest year soon be­comes more com­plex as suc­cess comes at a price.
