X-Ray Spex frontwoman Poly Styrene was the first British Black woman to lead a successful rock band. Her unconventional voice became the sound of rebellion in late 1970s England, and left behind a vast cultural footprint as well as a daughter, who became the steward of both her mother’s legacy and her demons. Oscar-nominated actress Ruth Negga narrates as Celeste Bell examines her mother’s unseen artistic archive to better understand the nuances of Poly the icon and Poly the mother. Covering a broad swatch of topics from the environment to women’s right’s, motherhood and mental health, this is a surprisingly rich character-driven documentary about a teenage artist who had to grow up onstage and in the spotlight.
