Speaking to Uncut earlier this year, Bård Kjøge Rønning – a Norwegian filmmaker who contributed to the documentary – said that, “Nick’s film is really based on his personal involvement with Marianne. They were seeing each other in London for almost half a year, in ’68. And he built this story on the character of the Marianne that he knew. Nick told me that Marianne had this special kind of energy she gave to everyone. And she gave it to him. He was 20 at the time, and doubting whether to be a filmmaker. She said, ‘Go for it.’ She inspired him a great deal.”

The July 2019 issue of Uncut is on sale from May 16, and available to order online now – with The Black Keys on the cover.
