PBS at the TV Critics Press Tour | Steven Sebring interview

Filmmaker Steven Sebring is interviewed by video blogger Zadi Diaz (www.epicfu.com) as part of PBS's coverage of the 2009 Television Critics Association Press Tour (Aug 1-2, 2009). Sebring discusses his upcoming POV documentary "Patti Smith: Dream of Life," coming to PBS December, 2009. For more: www.pbs.org/pov/pov2009/pattismithShot over 11 years by acclaimed fashion photographer Steven Sebring, "Patti Smith: Dream of Life" is a remarkable plunge into the life, art, memories and philosophical reflections of the legendary rocker, poet and artist. Sometimes dubbed the "godmother of punk" — a designation justified by clips of her early rage-fueled performances — Smith was much more than that when she broke through with her 1975 debut album, Horses. A poet and visual artist as well as a rocker, she befriended and collaborated with some of the brightest lights of the American counterculture, an often testosterone-driven scene to which she brought a swagger and fierceness all her own. Debuts: Wednesday, December 30, 2009, 9 p.m. ET on PBS
Length: 07:52
