The Time Machine: Patti Smith Reads Poetry, Stars In Ivan Kral Film “Raven”

I came across this very cool eight minute film, “Raven,” that Ivan Kral made about Patti Smith and her band in 1975. It’s beautiful, and maybe four minutes into it Patti starts reciting her poetry.

“Raven,” from Prelinger Archives, directed by Ivan Kral with voiceover by Patti Smith.

These others have audio of Patti Smith reading her poetry.
