Patti Smith reads the Declaration of Independence, in a rousing
performance. She follows it with an indictment of George W.
Bush. She speaks in English, but with German subtitles.
In a way, I’m hesitant to dignify Bush by mentioning him on my
site. But the performance is worth watching.
Lest we forget.

DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
From Steven Sebring:
In honor of the upcoming election we invite you to check out this
indictment clip from the film Patti
Smith: Dream of Life and we would like to remind you [as if you
need any help] to get out and vote…
We are proud to announce that the film has just won the award for best
documentary at the Durban International Film Festival in South Africa.
The film has had a warm response and is receiving such thoughtful and
poetic reviews. It is currently opening in regional theaters across the
country. You may find a list of actual dates and theaters on the dreamoflifethemovie
web site. We try to do our best updating it as often as possible…
Clearly, this was made and posted before the election last year. It remains pertinent, however.
