You’ve probably heard of Elliot Smith before. Maybe you’ve heard his music, maybe you’ve heard about how he died, maybe you’ve heard about the Elliot Smith memorial mural in Los Angles. Heaven Adores You is a documentary about the late songwriter’s life, with interviews with his family and friends, and it includes never before heard music, and thought to be lost footage of Smith.
The above trailer is from the film’s original Kickstarter campaign in 2011, but the film is way past that stage now. Heaven Adores You will premier next month at the San Francisco International Film Festival on May 5th, 2014.[via First Showing]
