A short clip from ‘The Sad & Beautiful World of Sparklehorse’. The film is broken into chapters based around each album title. This is from ‘Dreamt for Light Years in the Belly of a Mountain’.

Mark Linkous, the driving force behind Sparklehorse, was the man who literally died and came back to life. His existence mirrored his mesmerising and unique music. He was at once a humble, modest man; the epitome of a Southern Gentlemen. He was also self-destructive; a recovering addict who battled with debilitating depression. The dual nature of his personality reflects the extremes of his music; beautiful, surreal, off-kilter pop contrasted with dark, distorted ballads and discordant punk-rock.

The Sad and Beautiful world of Sparklehorse is a feature length music documentary. A cult and hugely influential figure in the alternative music scene, the critically-acclaimed Linkous had a dramatic life that saw him battle with drug and alcohol addiction, paralysis, and debilitating mental illness that resulted in his eventual suicide.

Dir. Alex Crowton & Bobby Dass
