Poly Styrene: I am a Cliche

Bi-racial, female, working class and possessing an unforgettable warrior-cry voice (not to mention the most satirical perspective in punk), X-Ray Spex founder Poly Styrene was, as Billboard proclaimed, "one of the least conventional front-persons in rock history”.

For the first time, the jigsaw pieces of Poly’s fascinating life are brought together by her daughter Celeste Bell, writer Zoë Howe and director Paul Sng, combining original interviews, new research, music and previously unseen archive material to present a thrilling, poetic and at times impressionistic portrait of a singer, seeker, a maverick and a mother.
