This unique double bill features separate documentaries on each of the legendary Davies brothers from The Kinks, in the presence of director Julien Temple.
An intimate and candid trip down memory lane with the iconic lead guitarist of The Kinks.
Shot on the hills and beaches of Exmoor (which have bewitched the London-born Dave Davies since childhood) and interspersed with a wide range of archival footage, its subject narrates the struggles of growing up poor in postwar Britain, his even more tumultuous experiences in the limelight, and his sentimental but uncompromising approach to life.
