Trending Now

The Elliott Smith documentary Heaven Adores You will receive a theatrical release in cinemas around the world during May 2015.

The Kickstarter-funded film originally premiered at the San Francisco International Film Festival in 2014.

According to a press release, “Heaven Adores You is an intimate, meditative inquiry into the life and music of Elliott Smith (1969-2003). By threading the music of Elliott Smith through the dense, yet often isolating landscapes of the three major cities he lived in — Portland, New York City, Los Angeles — Heaven Adores You presents a visual journey and an earnest review of the singer’s prolific songwriting and the impact it continues to have on fans, friends, and fellow musicians.”


The film will screen in major cities during May, including New York, Los Angeles, Austin, San Francisco, Montreal and Tel-Aviv.

UK audiences can see the film at the Quad in Derby from May 5-14.
