Skin Too Few: The Days of Nick Drake

Montana Premiere

It took twenty posthumous years for Nick Drake’s music to gain recognition. A Skin Too Few approaches the silent landscapes, locations, people and music in his tragically short life, and examines how Drake captured time, beauty, loss, and wistful desires with precision in his subtly crafted songs. Very little film footage of Drake exists, performance or otherwise, but director Berkvans masterfully overcomes this obstacle with striking sequences in which the camera travels in Drake’s footsteps (his bedroom, the streets of Cambridge) while his songs unfurl on the soundtrack.
