Be Here to Love Me: A Film About Townes Van Zandt | 2005
As a musician, Townes Van Zandt was legendary--perhaps one of the greatest who ever lived, inspiring artists from Bob Dylan to Norah Jones to Steve Earle. As a man, a husband, and a father his life was as tragic and as beautiful as the songs he wrote. Townes was an enigma to his family, pinned between a deep longing for home and the nomadic lifestyle that was necessary for his livelihood. Combines emotional interviews with friends and family with never seen footage of Townes Van Zandt; from rare performance and interview footage to intimate portraits shot in Van Zandt's own home. It also includes appearances by many famous musicians including Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Steve Earle, and Emmylou Harris.
