Patti Smith is an activist, performer, mother and legend.

In a new doc, Patti Smith: Dream of Life, filmmaker Steven Sebring documented Smith for over a decade following sixteen-year hiatus while she raised a family. 

Narrated by Smith herself, Dream of Life is an unconventional biography that offers a window into her philosophies, musings, and personality as well as an examination of her poetry, music, writing and art. Her fierce talent and spirit are on full display here. 

This film is screening as part of Game Changers at Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema (506 Bloor St. W) on Wednesday August 2nd at 6:15 p.m. Get tickets here
