Doc’n Roll Film Festival’s SOUNDS OF LONDON celebrates the capital’s rich and rebellious musical heritage by showing a three month, fourteen film cinematic exhibition, taking place at leading art-house and independent cinemas across the city from 16th March – 16th June 2016. Dr. Martens are giving you the chance to win tickets to selected screenings by filling in the form below, featuring many live Q&As with key characters and film-makers in conversation with journalists and music-scene protagonists. SOUNDS OF LONDON will focus on musical genres as diverse as rock, pop, indie, and of course – punk. Take a look at films below that you could attend:

Showing on Wednesday 4th May (as part of Punk.London), in Crouch End Arthouse at 8:30pm. The screening of the film is also followed by a Q&A with writer, broadcaster and Joe Strummer biographer, Chris Salewicz.

The Rise And Fall Of The Clash features previously unseen footage of the band at work and at play, interviews with the individual band members and with those who knew them well, and traces the downward trajectory of a band who were at one point “the biggest band in the world”.

This is a controversial documentary that deals with the obscure final years of the band, and not a film that pulls any punches, but neither does it overlook the life-changing effect that The Clash brought to so many. It paints a fascinating inside story of rivalry, treachery and betrayal, and the internal band dynamics and managerial interference that ultimately led The Clash to self-destruct.

Showing on Thursday 19th May (as part of Punk.London), in Rio Cinema Dalston at 6:30pm. The screening of the film is also followed by a Q&A with screenwriter and assistant director Chris Salewicz.

D.O.A - A Rite of Passage (1980)

D.O.A – A Right of Passage released in 1980 by Lech Kowalski is a cult classic which hasn´t screened in the UK since the 90´s. It looks at the origin of punk rock, with interviews (including the famous interview of Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen in bed) and concert footage from the Sex Pistols, The Dead Boys, Generation X (with Billy Idol), The Rich Kids, the X-Ray Spex, and Sham 69, with additional music from The Clash, Iggy Pop, and Augustus Pablo.
Focusing on the Sex Pistols’ 1978 tour of the United States director Lech Kowalski followed them with handheld cameras through clubs and bars. Combined with footage of contemporary bands, trends in the fashion capitals, and punks of all shapes and colours, Kowalski created a grainy, stained snapshot of a movement at its peak, showing how certain authority figures saw the movement as a threat.
