Kurt Cobain: About a Son
"It makes you feel like you are Kurt Cobain. You'll feel like you're literally seeing the world through his eyes." --Jen Chaney, Washington Post Kurt Cobain About a Son is an intimate and moving meditation on the late musician and artist Kurt Cobain told entirely in his own voice. The film presents a rare personal portrait of a boy who becomes a musician, a husband, a rock star, a father and a songwriter whose words have touched millions. Cobain's story unfolds through his own narrative assembled from more than 25 hours of audiotaped conversations, never before made public, recorded during late-night sessions with noted journalist Michael Azerrad for his book Come As You Are: The Story Of Nirvana. This improbable autobiography is a profound firsthand account of Cobain's successes and failures, fears and sense of humor that allows the audience unprecedented access into a person who turned out to be the most mysterious rock legend of his generation and beyond.
