I GET KNOCKED DOWN

Sophie Robinson, Dunstan Bruce | United Kingdom 2021 | Documentary | 89 min

This is the story of Chumbawamba’s ex-front man Dunstan Bruce. A burnt-out, middle-aged, ex pop star in search of his long lost anarchist mojo. Dunstan Bruce is 59 and he’s struggling with the fact that the world seems to be going to hell in a handcart. Twenty years after his fall from grace, the former front-man of the anarchist band Chumbawamba is angry and frustrated. How does a middle-aged, retired radical, who feels invisible get back up again? In this punk version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ Dunstan is visited by the antagonistic ghost of his anarchist past, Dunstan is forced to question what he has done with his life and is sent on a search into his past for his long-lost anarchist mojo. This is a personal voyage of reawakening and redemption as well as a call to arms for anyone who thinks activism is best undertaken by someone else.
