Director Julien Temple‘s Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds With Shane MacGowan has picked up the Special Jury Prize at the San Sebastián International Film Festival.
The Johnny Depp produced documentary is a cinematic exploration of the legendary poet, punk and Pogue Shane MacGowan. It should be fascinating.
Combining interviews, previously unseen archive footage and specially commissioned animations with an impressive soundtrack, the documentary details Shane’s explosive existence from his early days growing up in Ireland, to time spent on the mean streets of London and embracing the punk scene, to forming The Pogues. We discover MacGowan’s passions, humour, and deep knowledge of music, history, spirituality, and popular culture.
Wildcard Distribution will bring Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds With Shane MacGowan to Irish cinemas later in 2020.
