Capturing both Patti Smith’s charged live performances and her informal interactions with friends and collaborators including Philip Glass, this documentary is also a touching tale of survival, detailing as it does the artist’s recovery from the unexpected deaths of her husband and her brother.
This all-encompassing, award-winning documentary gives us a chance to discover the music icon Patti Smith behind closed doors. A very special portrait of a very special artist, this appropriately unconventional film was shot over 11 years and offers a vivid, often off-the-cuff insight into a legend.
