Catching Fire: The Story of Anita Pallenberg

Directed by Alexis Bloom & Svetlana Zill

This intimate documentary reveals the story of an unapologetic rock ‘n’ roller, actress, muse and mother who rose to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s.

Using the words of her unpublished memoir, Anita draws us deep into her world, with the help of a supporting cast that includes her family – Marlon, Angela, and their father Keith Richards.  

Never-seen-before home movies and family photographs explore life with the Rolling Stones: this is a bittersweet tale of both triumph and heartbreak. From Barbarella to the Swiss Alps, and the Lower East Side of New York, Anita Pallenberg was a woman ahead of her time. 

“The radiant and compelling Pallenberg finally gets her due as a creative force in her own right."


“A deeply human look at a remarkable woman.”
