Poly Styrene: I Am a Cliché

Celeste Bell, Paul Sng

United Kingdom
2021, 89'

Poly Styrene, from the English band X-Ray Spex, saw the Sex Pistols in 1976 and converted to punk rock. This film, directed by Paul Sng and the singer’s daughter, Celeste Bell, portrays a musical icon who has become a key inspiration for the riot grrrl and Afropunk movements, having revolted against the racist, sexist and oppressive structures in England, at the end of the 20th century. The opposite of a cliché.
