Cobain: Montage of Heck

Cobain: Montage of Heck Dir. Brett Morgen, USA, 2015, 132 min June 17th 2015 8pm - Yukon Arts Centre A special engagement with the documentary—8 years in the making and authorized by Francis Cobain—that is being hailed as the definitive film about the troubled life of lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter of Nirvana. Cobain’s own art, music, journals, Super 8 films, audio diaries and audio montages serve as the backbone for a immersive experience that’s a powerful, and at times difficult to watch, window into his lasting influence on culture, music and the tastes of a generation. Like the best of Nirvana’s music, this visceral film alternates between very loud and whisper quiet and demonstrates why Cobain remains an icon 20 years after his death. “ It’s stylistically daring and emotionally wrenching, two things you don’t often see in the same film.” ~ Montreal Gazette “The most intimate rock doc ever.” ~ Rolling Stone
