soul boysComing to theatres and VOD today, Wednesday, April 29: SOUL BOYS OF THE WESTERN WORLD

George Hencken’s look back at one of the seminal bands of the 1980s debuted at SXSW last year. It went on to screen at DOC NYC, Rome, Sheffield, CPH:DOX, BAFICI, and In-Edit, among others.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
In George Hencken’s impressively constructed portrait, Spandau Ballet, one of the bands that defined the 1980s, tell their own story, set against a backdrop of evocative period footage, including never-before-seen home movies. Bandmates reveal how a group of working-class Brits came to conquer music and influence fashion around the world, only to break up at the end of the decade. In the wake of the acrimonious legal battle that followed, all hope for reconciliation seemed lost, but nearly two decades later, fans finally got their wish.
