Created using over 25 hours on unheard audio interviews, About a Son is a intimate meditation about Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. The interviews were originally recorded by journalist Michael Azerrad for his book Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana – a song recorded on Nirvana’s second album Nevermind.
From his childhood to adolescence years, Cobain recounts his days of musical discovery and how he dealt with becoming famous. About a Son is a piercing insight into the life and times of a true rockstar and is a must for any Nirvana fan.
The conversations heard in the film have never before been made public and they reveal a highly personal portrait of an artist much discussed but not particularly well understood.
