I GET KNOCKED DOWN

Sunday, November 13, 5:00pm

(2021, DCP, UK, 87m) dir Sophie Robinson, Dunston Bruce. Dunstan Bruce is 59, and for many years he was the frontman of the Leeds-based anarcho-pop group Chumbawamba. In the slipstream of the punk movement, the band formed a cheerful bunch of activists, both on and off stage. As an indie band, they almost hit rock bottom when they unexpectedly hit the mainstream charts with Tubthumping. A decade after its release, the magazine Rolling Stone listed this raucous anthem in the Top 20 of the most annoying songs. It also made it into their ‘Top 10 One-Hit Wonders of All Time.’

But more importantly: Chumbawamba used their moment of fame in surprisingly subversive ways. The family visits by the band leader offer more than merely a trip down memory lane. The retired, middle-aged radical is on a quest to find a new release for the old, authentic anger that kept smouldering inside. An homage to the resilience of ordinary people.
