Principal photography for the documentary Poly Styrene: I Am A Cliche — which aims to review the life and legacy of Marianne Elliot (aka Poly Styrene of seminal punk band X-Ray Spex — has been completed. A rough cut of the film and a search for financing to cover the rest of the production costs is underway. A video of the trailer for the film has been released to Indiegogo backers.
I can’t share the video here, but can say that I am personally thrilled with what I saw in the trailer and am excited to see the finished project. I can share an interview with Poly Styrene from 1977, at the height of X-Ray Spex’s and the punk revolution’s popularity. Video below!

The page is in Portuguese, but it’s packed with so much information that I view it as an invaluable resource. Check it out!
