If you were a ‘90s kid then you’re probably familiar with Pearl Jam. Alongside Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mother Love Bone, Mudhoney, Alice in Chains, among others – they pioneered the Seattle scene in the nineties with what was commonly known as “grunge rock.”
WHO: Pearl Jam
Some bands have broken up and a handful died of drug overdose, but Pearl Jam remained intact. This year marks their twentieth anniversary, and they’re celebrating it with a documentary directed by Cameron Crowe (Say Anything, Singles, Almost Famous).
“We put so much into the film – moments, pieces of footage shot by band members, audio snippets, visual bursts, new and old interviews – many different formats, all meant to present an emotional scrapbook of what it felt like to be a member of the band on this twenty-year journey,” said Cameron Crowe. “The richness of the footage made our path very clear – just tell the story of the band and let the music guide us. It was a joy to make this film, and we’re thrilled share it with the fans.” (from Pearl Jam's official website)
