When news broke in late 2003 that Elliott Smith had died, aged 34, it devastated his legion of fans and left a gaping hole in the indie rock community. Heaven Adores You is an intimate, reflection on the life and music of this gifted singer-songwriter.
Bringing together some of Smith’s closest confidantes and collaborators, and treating us to previously unheard songs, personal pictures and rare footage, director Nickolas Rossi creates an elegant and fascinating tribute, filled with Smith’s distinctive, haunting songs.
As part of Mental Health Awareness Month we will be showing the first of a series of short docs before the film on Friday 8th May.
