film::Kurt Cobain:About a Son

Over a decade after Kurt Cobain’s death, the wildly iconic artist’s voice penetrates the big screen in a new film documenting his story – Kurt Cobain About a Son. Directed by AJ Schnack, Cobain recounts his own life from his childhood and adolescence to his days of musical discovery and later dealings with explosive fame.

Produced by Sidetrack Films, Kurt Cobain About a Son is an intimate and moving meditation on the late musician and artist Kurt Cobain. Based on more than 25 hours of previously unheard audiotaped interviews conducted with Cobain by noted music journalist Michael Azerrad, originally conducted for his book “Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana,” this film falls outside of documentary lines without celebrity sound bytes, news clips, sensational tabloid angles or attempts to mimic a grunge aesthetic. Instead, filmmaker Schnack has created something closer to an autobiography of Cobain – a profound first hand account of the musician’s own successes and failures, thoughts and experiences, allowing the audience unprecedented intimacy with a legendary figure in popular culture – set against the wildly divergent Pacific Northwest locations that loomed so large in Cobain’s life.

Kurt Cobain About a Son will be screened:
Wednesday, October 3 at the IFC Film Center in New York (323 Sixth Avenue)
Friday, October 5 at the Landmark Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles (11272 Santa Monica Blvd.)
Friday, October 12 at the Varsity Theatre in Seattle (4329 University Way NE).
The film’s theatrical release is made possible with financial sponsorship from DIESEL USA.
