Kurt Cobain - About A Son

For this unique film, director AJ Schnack assembled selections from the Azerrad interviews and merged them with newly filmed, evocative imagery of the three cities in Washington state that played a major role in Cobain's life: Aberdeen, Olympia and Seattle. Shot entirely on 35mm film, Schnack brings the Northwest to life in vivid detail: the logging industry where CobainÕs father worked, the small bars where local bands played their first shows, the endlessly overcast sky.

These impressionistic images, many of which were filmed in locations that were key to Cobain's life -- his home, apartment, school, record label, etc. -- are set to an evocative original score by noted Northwest musician and producer Steve Fisk, who produced Nirvana's Blew EP, and Death Cab for Cutie frontman Benjamin Gibbard, as well as the music of more than 20 artists who influenced or touched Cobain during his life, from childhood favorites Arlo Guthrie and Queen, to the influential punk bands Bad Brains and Big Black, to his Sub Pop contemporaries Mudhoney and Mark Lanegan to legendary music figures Iggy Pop, David Bowie and R.E.M.
