Synopsis

Scott Walker: 30 Century Man is a rare glimpse into the creative world of the most enig­matic figure in rock history, and will trace the undeni­able impact he has had on popular music through casual inter­views with some of his biggest, highest profile fans. We explore his fas­cin­ating tra­jectory, from jobbing bass player on LA's Sunset Strip, to his dom­in­a­tion of the British pop scene that began in the swinging summer of 1965, to his trans­form­a­tion into a composer of true genius; an uncom­prom­ising and serious musician working at the peak of his powers. At age 63, over the course of 2005, he went into the studio again, working on what could be his greatest artistic state­ment yet - and we were invited to document part of this process - a priv­ilege no film­maker has ever been granted.
