"Heaven Adores You," the intimate documentary about Elliott Smith's life and legacy, debuts May 5 at the San Francisco International Film Festival, but there's now a trailer that features touching interviews and harrowing tributes to the late musician.
Kevin Moyer, one of Smith's high school friends, produced the film and recently put together a benefit album, "Live From Nowhere Near You," which used unreleased Smith songs. Director Nickolas Rossi funded the film through Kickstarter, and raised over $15,000 from backers. "Heaven Adores You" features interviews with Smith's ex-girlfriend Joanna Bolme, his sister Ashley, and artists who knew him well, Jon Brion, Larry Crane, Neil Gust, Tony Lash, Brandt Peterson, Rob Schnapf and many more.
Check out the teaser below, and get ready to listen to "Between the Bars" over and over.
