Paul Kelly: Stories of Me
A very private person in a public career, Paul Kelly: Stories of Me, charts the many lives, loves and losses of Paul Kelly, one of Australia’s most prolific singer-songwriters. Kelly has been marking out the Australian landscape and its people through words and music for almost 40 years. Kelly has penned over 350 songs, drawing on his many literary, musical, artistic and sporting heroes for inspiration, begging, borrowing and stealing from all of them. His songs chart, not just the physical terrain, but also the emotional landscapes he and his contemporaries have walked through. Featuring rare archival footage and never-before-seen live performances.
‘This fine, fascinating, foot-tapping and slightly subversive documentary about one of Australia’s cultural icons… will go down a treat locally because its subject has expressed what it’s like to be Australian for nearly 40 years.’ SANDY GEORGE, SCREEN DAILY
