Don’t Go Gentle captures the 10 year journey of Bristol based band Idles as they struggle with grief and their vulnerabilities.

Delivered with moving determination Don’t Go Gentle explores the band’s experience, lyrics and sound as we learn the reasons why these five individuals have connected with legions of people across the world. We see just how that relationship unfolds in the most courageous and positive of human ways.

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 (Exeter bred) 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.

Preview Screening + Q&A

Join us on Thu 1 Jul at 8.15pm for a special preview screening which will be followed with a Q&A from members of the filmmaking team. More details to be announced soon!
