This Tuesday night at O Cinema Wynwood (90 NW 29th St.) please join us as we co-present the exclusive Miami screening of Heaven Adores You, “an intimate, meditative inquiry into the life and music of Elliott Smith.”
Though he passed in 2003 at the far-too-soon age of 34, Elliott remains one of our best-selling artists here at Sweat. Tickets are available here and you can read more about the film below. See you there!
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.
What kind of person was Elliott Smith? Since his death in 2003, many media-makers have attempted to tell the story of his creative “sad-sack” genius, often through the lens of struggle, heartache and addiction. Director Nickolas Rossi employs a different lens, placing music center-stage, creating a framework for Elliott to narrate the story of his life himself, through the filter of recorded conversations and interviews, with support from friends along the way. With great care, Rossi expertly weaves together 30+ interviews to create an intimate and personal history like never seen before.
