Nirvana legend Kurt Cobain will hit UK cinemas next spring

Brett Morgan has confirmed that his Kurt Cobain documentary will receive a UK theatrical release in the spring of 2015

rett Morgan’s Kurt Cobain documentary Montage Of Heck is to hit UK cinemas next year, after Morgan confirmed that it would receive a UK theatrical release in Spring 2015. In the US the film will premiere on TV channel HBO. Cobain’s daughter Francis Bean is an executive producer to the documentary, which is the first Cobain film to be ‘fully authorised.’

When speaking on Montage Of Heck, Morgan has expressed the time that it’s taken him to complete the film. His comments in a press release were, “I started work on this project eight years ago. Like most people, when I started, I figured there would be limited amounts of fresh material to unearth. However, once I stepped into Kurt’s archive, I discovered over 200 hours of unreleased music and audio, a vast array of art projects (oil paintings, sculptures), countless hours of never-before-seen home movies, and over 4,000 pages of writings that together help paint an intimate portrait of an artist who rarely revealed himself to the media.”

Montage Of Heck takes its title from one of Cobain’s own mixtapes, which featured samples of The Monkees, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden among others. Tracy Marander, who was in a relationship with Cobain prior to his marriage to Courtney Love, told The Guardian that the tape took the Nirvana songwriter and frontman a long time to make. She explained “He made it using records, some TV, and random sounds he recorded. It was all made in Aberdeen [Washington], I believe. It took him quite a while.”
