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, this 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 origin story is 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.
