CROCK of Gold, a new documentary about musician Shane MacGowan, has won The Special Jury Prize at San Sebastian Film Festival.

Although produced by Johnny Depp, the jury stressed the award is ‘for Julien Temple [director] and Shane MacGowan for the beautiful, poetic, unflinching and unreconciled punk energy’ displayed throughout the movie.

Depp arrived to San Sebastian earlier this week to promote the film but quickly headed to Monaco for the Monte-Carlo Gala for Planetary Health.
