The film's title comes from an unreleased Pink Floyd song
A new documentary film about late Pink Floyd member Syd Barrett is set to be released later in 2015.
Barrett, who died in 2006, founded Pink Floyd with bass guitarist Roger Waters, drummer Nick Mason and keyboardist Rick Wright in 1965. He famously retreated from the media’s spotlight after leaving the band in 1968.
The film, titled ‘Have You Got It?’, is directed by Roddy Bogawa and aims to provide insight into the singer and guitarist’s life and short musical career. It features interviews with the surviving members of the band. Its name comes from an unreleased Pink Floyd song.
Speaking to Mojo recently, Bogawa described the film as “truly unique”, adding that it “has an intimate quality that the other films about [Barrett] haven’t been able to capture”.
‘Have You Got It?’ is expected to be released in the late summer.
