Followed by an in-person Q&A with director Roddy Bogawa and producer Orion Williams.
Cult icon, enigma, recluse… the life of Syd Barrett, founding member of Pink Floyd, is full of unanswered questions. Was he a drug casualty of the sixties? Did he walk away from the pressures of the commercial music world? Did he suffer from an undiagnosed mental illness?
Many Pink Floyd works examined themes of genius and madness. Though he named the group, wrote the first two hit songs and was the lead vocalist and guitarist, Barrett was pushed out of the band by its members who were convinced he was having an LSD-induced psychotic breakdown. After leaving Pink Floyd, Barrett eventually dropped out of the music industry completely, living as a recluse for thirty years – while Pink Floyd went on to become one of the biggest-selling bands of all time.
Directed by Storm Thorgerson (Hipgnosis) and award-winning director Roddy Bogawa and featuring exclusive interviews, rarely-seen backstage footage, never-before-seen photographs and a soundtrack full of Floyd’s music, Have You Got It Yet? will thrill fans and newcomers to Syd’s legend alike.
