Coming Dec. 30 to your local PBS station (check local listings.) Musician Patti Smith 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).

For more: www.pbs.org/pov/pov2009/pattismith Shot 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
