    • Synopsis
    • In the wake of Steve Strange’s and David Bowie’s deaths, I’m Not Dead! The Birth of the New Romantics meets some of the influential Blitz Kids still alive, whose antics in late ‘70s and early ‘80s London defined decades of global fashion, music, art and club culture to follow.
      Through combining rarely seen archival footage and candid interviews with core members of the New Romantic movement; including, Boy George, Princess Julia, Judy Blame, Pam Hogg, Philip Sallon, Mark
      Moore and Mark Almond alongside interviews with other influential tastemakers including; Grayson Perry, Andrew Logan, Zandra Rhodes and Vivienne Westwood, we revisit the era to reflect on the past and
      show how this has impacted on their future lives.
      We discover the values that drive the New Romantics and find out how these radical elders have carried the creative driving force of their youth into their older age. Their lives, past and now, are not only influential but
      inspirational. They prove age is just a number when it comes to having an exciting youthful life.
      I’m Not Dead! The Birth of the New Romantics is the definitive account of an often glazed over microcosm of the iconic scene which is finally gaining the recognition and acknowledgement for its contribution to modern culture it deserves.
