About the film:

World Premiere at Doc’n Roll Film Festival supported by the British Film Institute.

Don’t Go Gentle is a film about finding strength in vulnerability. It journeys through determination, friendship and adversity of British rock band IDLES as they fight for a place in a divided socio-political environment, unexpectedly inspiring and unifying an international community along the way.

About the filmmakers:

The story focuses not only on the band’s personal journey, but the formation of AF Gang, a community of devoted global fans, who worked together to make the documentary. AF Gang was formed in 2017 by photographer Lindsay Melbourne, an associate producer on the film.

Don’t Go Gentle is the feature directorial debut for Mark Archer. Former IDLES guitarist Andy Stewart produced.
