PAUL KELLY, STORIES OF ME

Australia / 2011 / 93 min / DCP

Director : Ian Darling

This documentary charts the life, loves and losses of Paul Kelly, one of Australia’s most gifted singer-songwriters. Kelly has been mapping out the Australian landscape and its people through words and music for almost 40 years.  The sixth of nine children, a former altar boy, dux of his school, sports champion and grandson of two famous opera singers, Kelly began playing guitar at the age of 12. Since then, he has penned over 350 songs on themes of love, sex, death, family, friends and places, drawing on an enormous number of heroes – literary, musical, artistic and sporting – for his inspiration, and 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. He is a storyteller, a poet.
