I Get Knocked Down

dir. Sophie Robinson, Dunstan Bruce / 2021 / UK / 88min.
“I Get Knocked Down” is the untold story of Chumbawamba and Dunstan Bruce’s personal voyage of rediscovery, redemption and reawakening

Dunstan Bruce is currently 59 and he’s struggling with the fact that the world seems to be going to hell in a handcart. 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? In this punk version of Dickens’ “I Get Knocked Down” is the untold story of Chumbawamba and Dunstan’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. An extraordinary, inspiring film for our times.
