Filmed over 11 years by fashion photographer Steven Sebring, Patti Smith: Dream of Life is an intimate portrait of the legendary punk rocker, poet, and artist, sometimes dubbed "the godmother of punk." Following Smith's personal reflections over a decade, the film explores her many art forms and the friends and poets who inspired her — William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Dylan, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Michael Stipe. Smith emerges as a crucial, contemporary link between the Beats, punks, and today's music. Shot in lush, dark tones, featuring rare performance clips, and narrated by the artist herself, the film is an impressionistic journal of a unique and multi-faceted American artist.
