The ultimate songwriter's songwriter, Townes Van Zandt had a profound impact on generations of musicians from Bob Dylan to Norah Jones, yet he avoided the commercial success enjoyed by many of his own fans. The film provides an intimate portrait of the legendary artist's haunting music and life.
Director, Margaret Brown focuses on the decision to live his life for his art - to "blow everything off... get a guitar and go!" Her haunting lyrical film, BE HERE TO LOVE ME combines 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 throughout the years. It also includes appearances by many famous musicians including Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, Kris Kristofferson, Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris.
