I Get Knocked Down is the untold story of Chumbawamba and lead singer Dunstan Bruce’s personal voyage of rediscovery, redemption and reawakening as well as a call to arms to those who think activism is best undertaken by someone else.

Dunstan Bruce is 59 and he’s struggling with the fact that the world seems to be going to hell in a handcart. He’s wondering where did it all go wrong? For him. For humanity.

Twenty years after his fall from grace, the former frontman of the anarchist band Chumbawamba is angry and frustrated. But how does a middle-aged, retired radical, who now feels invisible get back up again?

This Q&A will be hosted by Andi Elliott (Lime Bar)

Director : Sophie Robinson

Running Time : 117 minutes

+ Saintmaking short film (cert tbc)
This year marks the 30th anniversary of filmmaker Derken Jarman’s canonisation in Dungeness by an activist group of gay male ‘nuns’ known as the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

At the time in 1991, Derek Jarman was the most prominent person in the UK living openly with HIV. He was outspoken, radical and unapologetically queer. The perfect antidote, in the Sister’s eyes, to Ian McKellen’s acceptance of a knighthood in the 1991 new year honours.

Director : Marco Alessi

Running Time : 23 minutes
