    Punk Icon Terri Hooley talks to the Glasgow Film Festival about the new movie Good Vibrations which tells his very own story.

    In the video, Terri talks about the problems in Belfast in the late 70's and the importance of punk in such a troubled area.

    Relive your teenage kicks with the touching and hilarious story of how record shop owner Terri Hooley, against a backdrop of sectarian violence and political upheaval, bridged the divide between Catholic and Protestant and brought the youth of Belfast together in their shared love of punk.

    This is a dramatized version of events surrounding the beginnings of the Good Vibrations record label which helped launch the career of The Undertones, Rudi and many other Northern punk bands at the height of the Troubles -- offering a glimmer of unity and hope in a time of warfare.

    Featuring a warmhearted portrayal of Hooley by Richard Dormer, this is a glowing tribute to a remarkable man and a striking testament to the transportive power of music.
