Crock of Gold: A few rounds with Shane MacGowan picks up Special Jury Prize at A-List Festival
29 Sep 2020 : Nathan Griffin
Shane MacGowan of The Pogues.
Following the world premiere of the film at the San Sebastián International Film Festival last week, the Shane McGowan documentary Crock of Gold: A few rounds with Shane MacGowan has picked up the Special Jury Prize at the prestigious A-list festival in Spain.

Helmed by the multi-award-winning and critically acclaimed film, documentary and music video director Julien Temple (Glastonbury, The Filth and the Fury, London: The Modern Babylon) and produced by Johnny Depp the film is a cinematic exploration of the legendary poet, punk, and Pogue Shane MacGowan.

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. 

The film is a vision of the world through the eyes of the great punk poet himself and an intimate cast of close friends and family members, all channelled through Temple’s inimitable and eternally vibrant lens.

Crock of Gold was produced by Johnny Depp, Stephen Deuters, Stephen Malit, and Julien Temple for Infinitum Nihil, Nitrate Films, Hanway Films, BBC Music, and Warner Music Entertainment.   Wild Atlantic was the Irish co-producer on the project, which received funding from Screen Ireland.  Hanway Films is handling international sales.

Wildcard Distribution will be bringing the film to Irish cinemas later this year.
