Poly Styrene: I Am a Cliché
Old Market Hall
AVAILABLE NOW TO WATCH ONLINE AT HOME
The first woman of colour to front a successful UK rock band (X-Ray Spex), Poly Styrene introduced the world to a new sound of rebellion and left behind an immense cultural footprint. Her daughter Celeste subsequently became the unwitting guardian of her mother’s legacy and her mother’s demons.
Featuring unseen archive material, this documentary follows Celeste as she examines her mother’s unopened artistic archive to better understand Poly the icon and Poly the mother.
