Scott Walker achieved a fame rivaling the Beatles and the Rolling Stones in Britain in the mid-Sixties and had the looks and the voice to be one of the biggest singing stars of all time. But instead of turning to Las Vegas for fame and fortune, Scott turned for inspiration to the films of Ingmar Bergman, the existentialist novels of Sartre and the tortured chanson of Jacques Brel and morphed into one of the most influential and enigmatic figures in rock history, and is revered by critics, musicians and a die-hard cult of fans as one of the most astonishing and important sound-makers of the last 30 years. Four years in the making, Scott Walker - 30 Century Man is an in-depth look at a man who turned his back on fame to follow a very singular and uncompromising artistic path, something all too rare in today's accelerated pop culture. In addition to a rare interview with the reclusive Walker himself, the film features interviews with an impressive roster of his famous fans and collaborators as David Bowie, Brian Eno, Radiohead and Jarvis Cocker.
