In advance of its May 4 HBO debut, Brett Morgen’s highly-ancticpated documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck will receive limited theatrical runs in New York, Los Angeles, and grunge-rock capital Seattle, according to Billboard. The run, which begins April 24, qualifies the film for 2016 Academy Award consideration.
Additionally, Montage of Heck will be shown in 72 countries. Morgen told Billboard at South By Southwest—where the movie screened this week—that “within 90 days, the whole world will have access to the film.” A DVD release is slated for November.
In advance of SXSW, the first offical chronicle of the Nirvana frontman’s short, unhappy life premiered and was well-received at the Sundace Film Festival before also playing in Berlin.
