Frances Bean Cobain was just around two years old when Kurt Cobain took his life. Now, the 22-year-old is working on a documentary about her father, in collaboration with director Brett Morgen. This will be the first documentary backed by members of Cobain’s family – in fact, they’ve given Morgen their full stamp of approval and Frances Bean has signed on as Executive Producer of the film.
Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck has been in the works for quite some time – Morgen started on the project in 2007. The film is said to have several hours of never before seen or heard audio and video from the late rocker, as well as visual art pieces created by Cobain himself. All this new material has been unearthed thanks to the support of Cobain’s family, who allowed Morgen to dig into Kurt’s archives and personal works in order to flesh out the film.
Frances Bean tweeted some excited words about the documentary, which she calls “an intense yet wonderful examination of Kurt’s life & art.” You’ll be able to catch the film on HBO once it drops next year.
