A new documentary about Elliott Smith is currently in the works.

Heaven Adores You is being directed by Nickolas Rossi and, as well as looking at the life and work of Smith, who passed away in 2003, will cover his impact on fans and fellow musicians since his death, reports Flavorwire.

"By threading together musical performances of those influenced by the music of Elliott Smith, through the lush and often isolating images of the three major cites he lived in throughout his short life (Portland, OR, New York], NY and Los Angeles, CA), this film will go beyond your average 'behind the music' documentary," says the film's Kickstarter page.

Filmmaker Rossi said: "I was living in Portland, OR between the years of 1994-1999. I fondly remember discovering Elliott's music and it's always been the soundtrack to my time in the Pacific Northwest."

"There is a strong fan base for Elliott's music, even eight years after his death. His music is also being discovered by fans who haven't heard of him until now," he added.

Heaven Adores You follows 2009's Searching for Elliott Smith.
