Heaven Adores You: Nickolas Rossi Kickstarts Elliott Smith Documentary

November 21st, 2011 by Anne Richardson · 2 Comments · News

“Who’s that guy, in the white suit, with the dirty hair? How did he get here?” Elliott Smith

Attention music loving readers: you have until Dec. 13 to support an experimental film/documentary about Elliott Smith. The Kickstarter trailer for  Heaven Adores You also serves as an evocative portrait of his hometown.

Director Nickolas Rossi lives in Brooklyn, but spent some formative years in Portland, which makes him a lillypadder.

But what makes Heaven Adores You an Oregon film is the subject, singer-songwriter Smith.

I hereby serve notice that as soon as Heaven Adores You is finished, it will be claimed as an Oregon film, based on the subject, Oregonian Elliott Smith.

    movie looks cool but i don’t think Elliott Smith would consider himself an “oregonian” because he was born and grew up in texas.

    You’re right – Elliott Smith was not born in Portland, but he arrive here in time to graduate from Lincoln High School.

    Here’s how wikipedia sees it “Smith was born in Omaha, Nebraska, raised primarily in Texas, and resided for a significant portion of his life in Portland, Oregon, where he first gained popularity.”
