Tom Petty, Somewhere You Feel Free: The Making of Wildflowers

A unique take on Petty at the height of his powers – an intimate and emotional look, with archival footage

Playing in-person at the Smith Rafael Film Center

Winner of the 2021 SXSW Audience Award, Tom Petty, Somewhere You Feel Free: The Making of Wildflowers offers a unique take on the Petty legacy, diving deep into a condensed period of creativity and freedom for the legendary rock star.

Capturing the period of 1993-1995, during which he created his seminal and most emotionally raw album Wildflowers, the unvarnished look at Petty features never-before-seen footage drawn from a newly discovered archive of 16mm film as well as new interviews with album co-producers Rick Rubin and Heartbreaker Mike Campbell, along with original Heartbreaker Benmont Tench.

Director Mary Wharton illuminates an artist at the height of his powers, providing an intimate and emotional look at an enigmatic icon with archival footage of Petty and his band in the recording studio, behind-the-scenes on tour, and at home with his family, providing a view of Tom Petty as he has never been seen before.
