Pink Floyd Founder, Syd Barrett is the subject of an upcoming documentary titled, Have You Got It Yet?.

The film will feature interviews with Pink Floyd, along with members of The Who, Blur and many more artists who have been directly and indirectly influenced by Barrett, to paint a "portrait of one of the most iconic cult figures in music”.

As Deadline reports, Have You Got It Yet? was co-directed by Roddy Bogawa and the late graphic designer Storm Thorgerson, who passed away in 2013. Thorgerson had known Barrett – who died in 2006 - since the ’60s, having gone to high school with both him and fellow Floyd member, Roger Waters. He was also co-founder of Hipgnosis, the UK company behind many iconic album covers over the decades - in particular, the iconic covers of Pink Floyd’s 1973 opus, Dark Side Of The Moon, and 1975’s Wish You Were Here, named in dedication to Barrett.

Per a statement, Have You Got It Yet?… “was completed by Bogawa with StormStudios photographer Rupert Truman and producer Julius Beltrame after Storm’s untimely death”.

Along with Pink Floyd members and other key artists, the documentary will feature interviews with Barrett’s sister Rosemary Breen, and Pink Floyd managers Peter Jenner and Andrew King. The official soundtrack includes over 50 songs from both Pink Floyd and Barrett’s solo catalogues. 

Co-director, Roddy Bogawa explains, “It’s the tragic story of Brian Wilson and Kurt Cobain and many others in music and art whose explosive creative drives often rest on fragile exuberant energy that gets pressure cooked from their success.” 

“The film is not only a portrait of one of the most iconic cult figures in music through the lens and memories of his bandmates, lovers, friends, and musicians but also a look back at a group of friends growing up in the mid-sixties and their idealism, ambitions, hopes and dreams during such an amazing cultural moment.”

A release date for Have You Got It Yet? The Story of Syd Barrett And Pink Floyd is yet to be confirmed - we will keep you posted!
