Vashti Bunyan: From Here to Before

Film

Time Out says

Already familiar to fans of her music (and readers of the classier Sunday supplements), crystal-throated folkie Vashti Bunyan's tale of exploitation, resignation, exile and rediscovery is already one of this century's most enduring musical legends. Kieran Evans' gorgeously shot, achingly intimate portrait retraces Bunyan's infamous voyage by gyspy caravan, from Inner London to the Outer Hebrides, during which she wrote her stunning, commercially disastrous 1970 album 'Just Another Diamond Day'. Mercifully avoiding too much self-congratulatory reunion footage, the film explores a very slim slice of Bunyan's life in loving detail, pausing only to wonder at the enduring charm and mystery of this prodigious, prodigal talent.
