Two and a half years ago, filmmaker Nickolas Rossi launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a documentary about the impact Elliott Smith left on the music world after his tragic death in 2003. Now the film, titled Heaven Adores You after a song by the band Earlimart, is finally finished, and it’s not only the first full-length documentary with permission to use Smith’s music, but will include more than a dozen previously unreleased songs. If that’s not completely, unmanageably exciting to you, I’m going to assume that you either have the heart of a pre-stolen-Christmas Grinch, or a normal-sized heart that’s just never heard Elliott Smith’s music.

The film premiered at the San Francisco International Film Festival last month, and has screenings at AFI DOCS documentary festival this weekend. No word yet on a wider release, but Rossi has put out the first few minutes, which focus on Smith’s discomfort with the attention he got from his Oscar nomination for Good Will Hunting. If ever there was a more brilliant musician less interested in worldwide fame, well, I’d like to watch his documentary.
