Be Here to Love Me: A Film About Townes Van Zandt

DIRECTED BY - Margaret Brown

The Ultimate songwriter's songwriter, Townes Van Zandt had a profound impact on generations of muscicians from Bob Dylan to Norah Jones, yet he avioded the commercial success enjoyed by many of his fans. Many musicologists think he was more influential than Dylan

>b> Full Synopsis: His influence can be found deeply etched into the work of musicians from many different generations, but his name is barely known outside a close-knit circle of musicians, music fans, and critics. This film goes some way to paying a long-overdue debt to the late genre-hopping singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt, with rare footage and warm testimonials from the likes of Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, and a hilarious, tequila-swigging Guy Clark combining to tell Van Zandt's remarkable tale.
