The film will open in UK cinemas on November 20th with an Irish theatrical release scheduled once Irish cinemas reopen.
Among the interviewees in the film are MacGowan himself, his friend Johnny Depp, Shane's sister Siobhan, his father Maurice, Shane’s partner Victoria Mary Clarke, Gerry Adams, Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream, members of The Pogues, Bono and Nick Cave.
Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan had its world premiere at the San Sebastian International Film Festival last month where it won the Special Jury Prize and positive reviews.
Directed by the multi-award-winning Temple, whose previous music films include Glastonbury, The Filth and the Fury, and Keith Richards: The Origin of the Species, and produced by Johnny Depp, the film is described as a "cinematic exploration of the legendary poet, punk and Pogue Shane MacGowan".
The press release for the film says, "Combining interviews, previously unseen archive footage and specially commissioned animations with an impressive soundtrack, the documentary details Shane’s explosive existence from his early days growing up in Ireland, to time spent on the mean streets of London and embracing the punk scene, to forming The Pogues.
"The film is a vision of the world through the eyes of the great punk poet himself and an intimate cast of close friends and family members, all channelled through Temple’s inimitable and eternally vibrant lens."
Wild Atlantic was the Irish co-producer of the project, which received funding from Screen Ireland.
