Thursday, 24 Jun 2021

“a touching portrait of fandom done right [...] Proof that bands can still change your life” ★★★★ - NME
Don't Go Gentle is a film about finding strength in vulnerability. It journeys through IDLES determination, friendship and adversity as they fight for a place in a divided socio-political environment, unexpectedly inspiring and unifying an international community along the way. In a time when the ground is shifting beneath our feet, where open communication and truthful reflection are more vital than ever, we journey with lead singer Joe Talbot and the band as they tear across stages, knocking down stereotypes, empowering fans to talk about mental health and the realities we may not feel comfortable to speak about.
We will also be joined by Don't Go Gentle producer, and the bands tour photographer Lindsay Melbourne for a Q+A session, after the film.
The venue will be open from 18:00 for drinks, the film screening starts at 20:00.
