Celluloid Dreams The Directors Label


A vital chronicle of rock history, as bold and individual as Patti herself.

Portrait of the legendary musician, artist and poet known as the godmother of punk, Patti Smith emerged in the 1970’s, galvanizing the music scene with her unique style of poetic rage, music, and trademark swagger. We experience this multitalented, charismatic and extremely private artist over 11 years through spoken words, performances, lyrics, interviews, paintings, and photographs. Smith, who narrates the film, defines the human experience as an overwhelming contradiction. She wrestles with the many paradoxes of human nature, while pulling out all the rock and roll, rawness, and grit she is known for.
