I Get Knocked Down
Dunstan Bruce is 59 & 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 & frustrated. How does a middle-aged, retired radical, who feels invisible get back up again?
In this punk version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ and haunted 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 & redemption as well as a call to arms for anyone who thinks activism is best undertaken by someone else.
