Joe Corré, son of punk visionaries Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren, burns an estimated £5M worth of punk memorabilia protesting the commodification of punk. Wake Up Punk takes this incendiary act of ‘cultural terrorism’ and the questions it raised to explore the lifespan and true worth of punk - the 20th century's most volatile movement.

With a fusion of documentary and magical realism, the film captures intimate moments between Vivienne and her two sons Ben and Joe as they candidly discuss their own relationship with McLaren and stories from the punk era. Through the music, politics and fashion that drove the movement to its eventual commercial demise, Vivienne gives a fascinating, in depth, never heard before insight as she charts the decline of punk and the subsequent rise of climate activism among the younger generations.
