The footage is from the new documentary about the late Nirvana frontman
Cobain: Montage of Heck premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January and arrived in UK cinemas this spring. It will receive its US television premiere on HBO next week (May 4).
Cobain: Montage of Heck was screened at the Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles last week, with daughter Frances Bean Cobain delivering an impromptu speech at the event.
Cobain, 22, served as an executive producer on the project and told an audience at the premiere: “I didn’t know Kurt but I think he would have been very proud of this film.” She continued: “It touches on some dark subjects, but at the end of the day, I think this film provides fans of Nirvana or not fans of Nirvana a basic understanding of who Kurt was as a human being. I think that’s been lost within the romanticism of him and the myth of him and his story.”
