POLY STYRENE: I AM A CLICHE
February 2, 2022

Poly Styrene was the first woman of color 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. But the late punk maverick didn’t just leave behind an immense cultural footprint. She was survived by a daughter, Celeste Bell, who became the unwitting guardian of her mother’s legacy and her mother’s demons.
Dir: Celeste Bell, Paul Sng / 2021 / UK / 89 min

“[A] riveting and valuable documentary.” – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

“This must-watch documentary tells a story often erased from rock history.” –Leonie Cooper, NME

“In a genre often saturated with sugar-coated stories and selective memories, Poly Styrene: I Am a Cliché proves to be anything but.” – Rachel Reeves, Consequence
