Dreaming of Patti Smith, the Documentary

Put this on your life-or-death-must-see list for September. A new documentary about rock god/poet/artist/activist/genius Patti Smith premieres next month. The film, entitled Patti Smith: Dream of Life, was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize and won the Cinematography award at Sundance.

The finished product is a result of 11 years of filming by director Steven Sebring, and I’ve heard it’s a poem of a documentary. Most excitingly, Smith narrates the film, which just finished a four-day preview at the Film Forum in New York. Luckies!

There’s also a companion book coming out, which I can’t wait to get my hot little hands on. Plus, you might want to pick up Patti Smith & Kevin Shields’ (of My Bloody Valentine) recently-released CD “The Coral Sea.”
