Since its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January, Cobain: Montage of Heck by Oscar-‐ nominated filmmaker Brett Morgen (“Crossfire Hurricane”, “The Kid Stays In The Picture”) has received a phenomenal response from fans and critics alike, and from June 4 it can be yours on Blu-‐ ray™ and DVD.
Morgen received unprecedented access to Cobain’s personal and family archives by the late rocker’s estate. The bonus features on the Cobain: Montage of Heck Blu-‐ray™ and DVD releases include:
Cobain’s mother kept an incredible amount of childhood videos and family photographs, and with Kurt himself keeping a vast array of artwork, photography and journals, writer/director/producer Brett Morgen has been able to create a visual feast that is cleverly enhanced with additional animation by Hisko Hulsing.
Morgen weaves together moving first-‐person testimony from Cobain’s mother and sister, his widow, Courtney Love, former girlfriend Tracy Marander, ex-‐bandmate Krist Novoselic and others with Cobain’s own words in the first fully authorised feature documentary on Kurt Cobain. The following clips give an insight:
Also featured are dozens of Nirvana songs and performances, as well as previously unheard Cobain originals. Co-‐produced by Universal Pictures International Entertainment Content Group and HBO Documentary Films, visual artist Frances Bean Cobain, Cobain’s daughter, is Executive Producer.
Eight years in the making, COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK chronicles the life of the legendary musician through a lifetime’s worth of work.
