Poly Styrene documentary
« on: April 27, 2017, 03:25:38 PM »
I'm sure I've mentioned this before but I really can't find it.

 There's a 'crowd funder' for a documentary about Poly Styrene.
 It's raised 49% of a £70,000 flexible goal but there's only 6 days left.
 I hope they extend the deadline but if any old punks are interested.....

Slow! I thought I'd accidently paused it at one point. Only got about half way through so far to be honest.

The Poly Styrene documentary could have been condensed into 50 minutes - and it would have been much better for it. FAR too many shots of her daughter advertising her book and far too many off-camera 'talking heads' adding very little to the story. The new Robert Lloyd/Nightingales one shown last month was far superior to it as an extended documentary.

P.S. Glad to see that they have finally let you out of that post-vaccine waiting area Alan!
