Patti Smith in Terrence Malick’s Song to Song

SEEN is looking forward to seeing Patti Smith in Terrence Malick’s new film Song to Song. The Godmother of Punk will be joining other musicians Iggy Pop, Lykke Li, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Lips and Florence and the Machine in the film, set in the thriving alternative scene of Austin, Texas. Song to Song combines the reality of Smith, Pop et al with a fictional story involving Rooney Mara, Natalie Portman, Ryan Gosling and Michael Fassbender who play two couples essaying creativity, love and relationships.

Smith will also contribute a track God Running to the film. In the clip she describes her husband’s death in the 90s and how she never thought she would live to be old, imagining an artist’s early demise instead. Venerable and kind to Rooney’s character, an indie musician, Smith is absolutely herself. The film premiered at SXSW at the weekend and will be released on 17th March.
