A documentary portrait of octogenarian queen of Cornish punk Viva Hamnell, or, how to be a rebel at 82.
A heart-warming portrait of rebellion, spirit and joie-de-vivre. Britain’s oldest punk, great-grandmother Viva Hamnell reflects on her life in Cornwall’s first punk band, her love of Vivienne Westwood-inspired style and her trial for drug possession.
In this life-affirming short documentary by award winning director Amanda Bluglass, ‘Viva’ demonstrates that even at the age of 82 it is still possible to look fabulous, laugh loud and live well.
