Synopsis
Born Jim Osterberg, Iggy Pop grew up in a trailer park near Detroit – the then ideal world for a single child of loving parents. Iggy excelled in school and dreamed of being a politician until the day JFK was shot. Jim went wild and became the musician called Iggy.
On stage Iggy & the Stooges laid ground for Punk Rock. They became the icon of an entire generation of musicians and angry youth around the globe. But the Rock'n Roll animal was kept in the cage of the American music industry - a fatal relationship that nearly broke him. In the end Iggy prevailed.
These days his favorite place is a little house in the outskirts of Miami. For this intimate portrait director Jean Boué came to visit Iggy - and met Jim.
