Persistence of Vision documentary trailer

I want to see this pretty badly, a long time coming documentary about Richard Williams‘ great unfinished masterpiece of animation, ‘The Cobbler and The Thief’. Looks like it’s finally finished (the doc, not the original film) and showing from next month at selected film festivals. Here’s the trailer and some clips, watching these fills me with a yearning for something that I know deep down will never be finished, the clips are so tantalising though. I first heard about this back in the 80′s and it has since passed into film legend, the story is a long and tragic one which wrote about before here.
