Heaven Adores You, the Elliott Smith documentary that originally debuted at the San Francisco International Film Festival in 2014, will finally arrive in Australia this November.

The Nickolas Rossi-directed film follows Smith's life from his unlikely mainstream rise in the mid-nineties to his tragic death in 2003, providing a uniquely intimate look at one of most celebrated — and yet still largely enigmatic — songwriters of our time. The documentary, collated from over 30 interviews with his closest friends, is also the first feature to receive permission to use Smith's catalogue, including 20 previously unreleased pieces.

Heaven Adores You will appear in selected cinemas around Australia, screening for just one night in each locale.

Tuesday, November 24
Luna Palace, Perth

Wednesday, November 25
Palace Centro, Brisbane
Palace Kino, Melbourne
Chauvel, Paddington, Sydney
Palace Electric, Canberra
Palace Nova Eastend, Adelaide

Ticket information available via Specticast and directly via the cinemas.
