TOM PETTY: SOMEWHERE YOU FEEL FREE Documentary to be Released in Theaters; Watch a Clip

Tom Petty, Somewhere You Feel Free: The Making of Wildflowers will see its theatrical release on October 20 (Tom's birthday) for a one-night global celebration via Trafalgar Releasing, with encore screenings in select cinemas on October 21.

The uplifting 89-minute documentary was directed by award-winning filmmaker Mary Wharton (Jimmy Carter: Rock and Roll President, Sam Cooke: Legend, Elvis Lives!, The Beatles Revolution) and first debuted in March as an Official SXSW 2021 Selection, winning the festival's Audience Award. The film went on to win Best Documentary Film at the Boulder Film Festival and received widespread critical acclaim throughout the film festival season.

Tom Petty, Somewhere You Feel Free: The Making of Wildflowers offers a unique look into the creative mastery and turbulent personal life of the legendary rock star, and captures the period of 1993-1995, when Tom worked with legendary producer Rick Rubin for the first time.

Produced by Peter Afterman with executive producers Dan Braun, Mary Wharton, and Adria Petty and presented by Inaudible Films, Warner Music Entertainment (Warner Music Group's TV and Film division), and Warner Records, the documentary illuminates an artist at the height of his powers, providing an intimate and moving look at an enigmatic icon.
