Description
Kurt Cobain, legendary lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter of Nirvana, "the flagship band of Generation X," remains an object of reverence and fascination for music fans. For the first time, his story will be told in Brett Morgen's Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, a fully authorized feature documentary that in 2015 will be released theatrically around the world by Universal Pictures and shown exclusively by HBO in the United States. Brett Morgen, the Oscar®-nominated filmmaker behind acclaimed documentaries--such as the HBO presentation Crossfire Hurricane, which celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the Rolling Stones, and The Kid Stays in the Picture--is writer, director, and producer of Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck. Visual artist Frances Bean Cobain, Cobain's daughter, is executive producer. This riveting book will accompany Morgen's highly anticipated documentary and delve further into the material created for the film, presenting an illuminating and honest portrait of the Nirvana frontman that captures the contradictions that made up his character. The book is composed of the extended versions of the exclusive interviews featured in the film. The book will also showcase the film's incredible visuals with a mixture of animation stills, rare photography, and other treasures from Kurt Cobain's personal archive. Director Brett Morgen will also offer his personal thoughts on the creation of the film and the need to shatter the mythos that surrounds Cobain. Taking fans into and beyond Morgen's movie with unparalleled insight into the world of the late Nirvana frontman, this book will be the perfect complement to a milestone documentary that will forever change the way fans view Kurt Cobain.
