Come celebrate Anita Pallenberg, the Italian-German actress, artist, model, style icon, and “It Girl” of the 1960s and 1970s, with this stunning new documentary. Dress in your best 60s/70s rockstar garb in her honor!

Credited as being the muse of the Rolling Stones, she was the romantic partner of the Rolling Stones founder, multi-instrumentalist Brian Jones, and later, from 1967 to 1980, the partner of Stones guitarist Keith Richards, with whom she had three children.

Marlon Richards, the son of Anita Pallenberg and Keith Richards, worked with directors Alexis Bloom and Svetlana Zill to share his mother’s story in all its complexity, with super 8mm home movies woven throughout the documentary. The directors worked closely with Anita’s inner circle over the course of three years, resulting in a private view of a life that was often lived in public.


ON SCREEN: Catching Fire: The Story Of Anita Pallenberg

2024. Directed by Alexis Bloom and Svetlana Zill. The words of Anita Pallenberg read by Scarlett Johansson. Runtime: 110 minutes. Not Rated.
Catching Fire: The Story Of Anita Pallenberg is about a woman who was at many points in her life a newspaper headline: Anita Pallenberg was a “rock n’ roll goddess,” a “voodoo priestess,” and an “evil seductress.” She was accused of trying to break up the Rolling Stones, among other things. But those who loved her considered her an exciting cultural force, and a loving mother — and innocent of the accusations. Never-before-seen home movies and family photographs explore life with the Rolling Stones and tell a bittersweet tale of both triumph and heartbreak. From Barbarella to the Swiss Alps, from the Lower East Side to London, Anita Pallenberg was a creative force ahead of her time.



Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Alexis now lives in New York. In her early career, she produced widely for the National Geographic Channel, and for BBC World. She also produced extensively for PBS Frontline and NOVA.

In 2014, Alexis won the Producers Guild of America Award for We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks, a feature documentary for Universal Pictures, also nominated for a BAFTA Award. In 2017, she was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Directing for Nonfiction Programming, and an Emmy for Exceptional Merit in Documentary Filmmaking (Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, for HBO.) Alexis directed, Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes and was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2019. Alexis’ films have shown in film festivals around the world: the Cannes Film Festival, Telluride, Toronto, and the New York Film Festival to name a few.


Svetlana Zill is a filmmaker born and raised in New York City. She has worked as a producer for some of the most renowned documentarians of our time including Alex Gibney, Errol Morris, and Morgan Spurlock. She began her career as an archival researcher on Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story and Mike Mills’ Beginners and worked as a consulting producer for the Academy Award nominated Cutie and the Boxer, which also won an Emmy.

Her work explores an impressive range of subjects that include vast CIA conspiracies, eccentric sports fans, pop culture icons and fine artists, and has been presented by HBO, Showtime, Netflix, PBS and The New York Times. CATCHING FIRE is Svetlana’s directorial debut.
