After a 10 year hiatus, 63 year old Scott Walker stepped back into the studio to record The Drift (4A.D.) and let the cameras roll to capture the album being made. In this documentary 30 Century Man, Director Stephen Kijak explores the music and career of this true musicians musician as friends such as David Bowie, Radiohead, Jarvis Cocker (Pulp), Brian Eno, Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz), and many many more give their take on just who Scott Walker is.
