‘Montage of Heck‘ will be the first official documentary which shines a spotlight on the life of legendary Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain.
Featuring ‘never seen before’ footage, ‘Montage of Heck’ will be directed by Academy Award-nominee Brett Morgen and produced by Kurt’s daughter, Frances Cobain. The documentary originally aired at Sundance Film Festival in Utah, USA.
It’s an eight-years-in-the-making labor of love right from childhood up until Kurt Cobain’s darkest moments. However, director Bret Morgen has stated that the documentary will not dwell on Kurt Cobain’s death. At Sundance Film Festival he explained: “I didn’t want to make a celebration of death…I wanted to make a celebration of life.”
The documentary is scheduled for release in cinemas across the UK on April 10th, and will be available via digital download on April 24th. Blu-ray and DVD will follow on April 27th. It will also air on HBO on May 4th.
The documentary centres around interviews with Courtney Love and Krist Novoselic, amongst others, and covers the entire span of Kurt’s life. What do you think of the trailer so far? Tweet us or send us a message on Facebook letting us know your thoughts.
