Unikke originaloptagelser fra indspilningen af ‘Wildflowers’ skildrer sangeren Tom Petty ved en musikalsk og personlig skillevej i sit liv.

I 1994 stod Tom Petty ved en skillevej i sit liv og sin karriere. En periode, hvor den ikoniske sanger var mellem to pladeselskaber og midt i en ægteskabskrise. Han var også midt i indspilningerne af sit andet soloalbum, nyklassikeren ‘Wildflowers’, med mesterproduceren Rick Rubin bag knapperne. Sidste år dukkede en stak 16mm film-ruller op af gemmerne. De er blevet til en intim og nærværende film om den ellers så private Tom Petty, i studiet og på den følgende turné. Et unikt indblik i sangskrivning og -produktion med to musikalske begavelser i fuld form, produceret af Pettys datter. Filmen var en af hovedtitlerne på den netop afholdte SXSW-festival.

Unique original footage from the recording of ‘Wildflowers’ depicts the singer Tom Petty at a musical and personal crossroads.

In 1994, Tom Petty was at a crossroads in both his life and his career. It was a period when the iconic singer was between two record companies and in the middle of a marital crisis. He was also in the middle of recording his second solo album, the modern classic ‘Wildflowers’, with master producer Rick Rubin behind the mixer. Last year, a stack of 16mm reels emerged from their hiding place and are emerging here for the first time in an intimate and attentive film about the usually private Tom Petty, in the studio and during the following tour. A unique look at songwriting and production with two musical talents in excellent form, produced by Petty’s daughter. The film was one of the main titles at the recently held SXSW festival.
