In case you missed it, the trailer for the upcoming documentary, “Cobain: Montage of Heck” based on the life of Kurt Cobain, sent social media into a frenzy, with the topic trending on sites.
Premiering at Sundance the film features original footage and photos from the past, with an alternate twist that includes animation in a really cool and interesting way. The images overall are really striking, the use of his voice and the band’s music also adds great significance to it all.
There’s a great emphasis on the art, it really speaks to the current generation, the way it did to the previous one. Nirvana’s music was revolutionary and this documentary, from what we can see in the trailer, also looks at the creative process. More so what went on around the time of the bands success, particularly pertaining to Cobain.
The film directed by Brett Morgen, with Cobain’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain as co-executive producer, will premiere on HBO this year, May 4. The authorised documentary will feature audio, footage, music, movies and art from the time, both created by Cobain and focusing on the frontman.
