Based on more than 25 hours of never-before-heard audiotaped interviews conducted by noted journalist Michael Azerrad, the film Kurt Cobain: About a Son is an intimate and moving portrait of the late musician and artist, told entirely in his own voice — without celebrity soundbites, news clips, sensational or tabloid angles.

Cobain’s narration is combined with cinematic imagery of the three cities in Washington State that played a major role in his life (Aberdeen, Olympia and Seattle) and set to an evocative score by noted Northwest musician and producer Steve Fisk 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. 

This screening will be preceded by a special introduction by Michael Azerrad, author of ‘Come as You Are: The Story of Nirvana’ whose recorded interviews with Cobain make up the film’s narration.
