A Skin too Few: The Days of Nick Drake
Nick Drake was an undisputed musical genius. His three albums Five Leaves Left, Bryter Later and Pink Moon contain a unique beauty which no other musician to this date has succeeded in copying. Although his work was not very successful while he was alive, today, more than thirty years after his passing, he is more "in" than ever. His songs are used in big movie productions; other musicians cover him; and his talent is frequently celebrated in festivals, books, commercials and on the Internet, etc. This beautiful featurette (50min) hauntingly explores his brief time on earth, his family, friends and musical legacy.
