1979 Britain. Strikes. Blackouts. Racism and Homophobia. The Blitz, a small London venue, provided a home for a generation of working class and art school teenagers who would go on to define the look, the sound, the style, and attitude of the ‘80s. Inspired by Roxy Music and David Bowie and driven by a gender-bending, genre-busting desire to make it, these penniless superstars in the making – including members of Culture Club, Spandau Ballet, Visage, Ultravox and Sade herself - would go on to change the face of fashion, music and culture across the world. This is their story. Co-Director and Co-Writer Bruce Ashley: “It didn’t matter if you were gay, or straight, what colour you were, everyone was a misfit who just wanted to dress up, dance and be together. Not to mention the 80s was a breakthrough era when it came to personal expression and the Blitz Kids were a huge part of that.”
