Soul Boys of the Western World

Soul Boys of the Western World

Soul Boys of the Western World is a music documentary not to miss this autumn as George Hencken makes her feature film directorial debut.

Hencken is no stranger to the documentary genre with her background in producing, but Soul Boys of the Western World sees her make the transition to the director's chair.

Set against the backdrop of the eighties music scene, the movie will follow the story of Spandau Ballet, focusing on the friendships and relationships that are at the core of the band.

The first clip for the film has been released, and we have it for you to take a look at:

Tony Hadley, John Keeble, Gary Kemp, Martin Kemp, and Steve Norman are all on board commenting on fantastic the archive footage that makes up this film.

Soul Boys Of The Western World is a journey through the 1980s and beyond; the story of a band, an era and how one small gathering of outsiders in London shaped the entire world’s view of music and fashion.

The film is not only a fascinating, often hard-hitting social and cultural document of the time, but a brutally honest story of how friendships can be won, lost, and ultimately regained.

The film received its World Premiere at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year, and the European premiere follows at the end of the month, with a performance from the band themselves.

Soul Boys Of The Western World will be in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on Tuesday 30 September including a live satellite performance from the Royal Albert Hall by Spandau Ballet. Tickets are on sale now from

The film is on general release from 3 October.
