I heard from filmmaker Stephen Kijak today that Scott Walker: 30 Century Man, his award-winning documentary about the music of Scott Walker, is about to hit US theaters:
Scott Walker takes a decade to make a record. So it only took us, oh, about two years following our film festival debut to get this damned thing into theaters. Not bad. So if you haven't seen it, downloaded it illegally, bought a PAL copy and unlocked your DVD player - save the date! NYC leads the pack with a week run at the IFC Center. SF/Berkeley will follow on Jan 23. More info to follow on that and other bookings. Plexifilm is releasing and will put out the DVD sometime in the Spring.
You can sign up to get updates on the film, including info on future release dates in the US, festival showings, and a prospective US DVD release over on Facebook's Scott Walker Film Fans.
I saw 30C Man at SXSW two years ago, and reviewed it for Club Kingsnake here. I also interviewed Stephen and associate producer Gale Harold about Scott, his music, and the film over on AfterElton.com.
It really does seem like forever more than two years since I saw the film... and here in San Francisco, it looks like only two more months before I can see it again. I'm not sure but I think I can probably live through that.
