Poly Styrene: I Am a Cliché

5 DogpoleShrewsburySY1 1EN

Old Market Hall



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.

Paul Sng, Celeste Bell (2021) UK 1h 29m
