Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck wowed Sundance audiences with its never-before-seen footage of Kurt Cobain's life and art, and this first trailer promises it will live up to the hype. It's a multimedia venture that uses tons of home movies, interviews, and animation to create a portrait of the man behind the teen spirit.

Director Brett Morgen (Chicago 10, The Kid Stays in the Picture) told Yahoo: "Kurt’s family, Courtney and Frances, as well as his mom and dad, provided me with the bulk of the materials that make up Montage of Heck. It was a unique situation in that I was granted final cut of the film, which I believe is significant in several respects. Given the access I had to Kurt’s primary sources as well as the people he was most intimate with during his lifetime, I believe this might be as close to Kurt as we are likely to get." Even Frances Bean Cobain, who executive produced the doc, gave it her seal of approval.

Whether you were In Utero when Kurt shuffled off this mortal coil or if you remember exactly where you were on April 5, 1994, this doc should be on your must-see list this spring.
