Youth – Sketch, Drugs & Rock N’ Roll is the portrait of a true artist, the story of an award winning producer known to his Mum as Martin, and to the rest of the world as, simply ‘Youth’.
A revealing and inspiring film directed by Paul Elliott and Sean Lamberth, who spent 18 months with full access to recording sessions, travelling alongside Youth in his VW camper van and talking to him while he painted and sketched. Youth’s story is told in his own words from his London Home and Studio. With new interviews from some of music’s biggest names including Paul McCartney, David Gilmour, Boy George, Jaz Coleman, Guy Pratt, Alan McGee, Danny McNamara, Reverend & The Makers and Alex “The Orb” Paterson amongst others. The film is soundtracked with previously unreleased, original music by Youth and Killing Joke in Dub which keeps the film driving through a steady stream of anecdotes, smoke hazed rooms and studio sessions.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Youth himself
