Poly Styrene film in Britain and Ireland


This 26 February 2021 video from Britain says about itself:

Poly Styrene: I Am A Cliché | Official Trailer | Available to Watch 5 March

Directed by Paul Sng and Celeste Bell

Documentary | English | 89 min

Poly Styrene was the first woman of colour in the UK to front a successful rock band. She introduced the world to a new sound of rebellion, using her unconventional voice to sing about identity, consumerism, postmodernism, and everything she saw unfolding in late 1970s Britain, with a rare prescience. As the frontwoman of X-Ray Spex, the Anglo-Somali punk musician was also a key inspiration for the riot grrrl and Afropunk movements.

Featuring unseen archive material and rare diary entries narrated by Oscar-nominee Ruth Negga, this documentary follows Celeste as she examines her mother’s unopened artistic archive and traverses three continents to better understand Poly the icon and Poly the mother.

ON RELEASE ACROSS UK/IRELAND MARCH 5

This film has been on public view in Britain and Ireland. Will it ever be possible to see it outside Britain and Ireland?
