This screening will be introduced by director Brett Morgen, who will be present for a Q&A following his new film Jane earlier in the evening
Experience Kurt Cobain like never before in the first fully authorized portrait of the famed rock music icon. Director Brett Morgen expertly blends Cobain's personal archive of art, music, and never-seen-before home movies with animation and revelatory interviews with his family and closest confidants. Following Kurt from his earliest years in Aberdeen, Washington, through the height of his fame, a visceral and detailed cinematic insight of an artist at odds with his surroundings emerges.
While Cobain craved the spotlight even as he rejected the trappings of fame, his epic arc depicts a man who stayed true to his earliest punk rock convictions, always identifying with the outsider and ensuring the music came first. Fans and those of the Nirvana generation will learn things about Cobain that they never knew while those who have recently discovered the man and his music will know what makes him the lasting icon that he is.
