Since its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January, the insightful new music documentary Cobain: Montage of Heck has been given a DVD/Blu-ray Australian release date.
Directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Brett Morgen (Crossfire Hurricane, The Kid Stays In The Picture), the film has received a phenomenal response from fans and critics alike, and from June 4th it can be yours to own.
Morgen received unprecedented access to the Nirvana frontman’s personal and family archives by the late rocker’s estate. The film weaves together 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, and is the first fully authorised feature documentary on the troubled rock star.
Co-produced by Universal Pictures International Entertainment Content Group and HBO Documentary Films, and executively produced by visual artist Frances Bean Cobain – Kurt’s daughter – the doco also featured dozens of Nirvana songs and performances, as well as previously unheard Cobain originals.
The bonus features on the Cobain: Montage of Heck Blu-ray and DVD releases include an extended interview with Kurt’s father Don Cobain, an interview with the director and the official trailer.
Eight years in the making, Cobain: Montage Of Heck chronicles the life of the legendary musician through a lifetime’s worth of work.
