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.
Don’t Go Gentle is presented as part of Doc’n Roll LDN’s 7th festival edition. For this hybrid edition, our shorts and half of our feature programme will be available to UK-wide audiences. Check www.docnrollfestival.com for details.
