Kurt & CourtneyNick Broomfield

Kurt Cobain, frontman of the very successful band Nirvana, committed suicide in 1994. He shot a bullet through his head. When Nick Broomfield wants to portray Cobains road to success and his sad destiny, he soon comes across the worrying suggestion that Courtney Love might have something to do with the death of the grunge guru.

Artist in Focus: Nick Broomfield

Nick Broomfeld has a BAFTA and dozens of prizes from prestigious film festivals to show off. In recent decades he has made documentaries about a range of subjects, but what stood out were his special portraits of tragic and fascinating public figures: musicians such as Whitney Houston, Kurt Cobain, Tupac Shakur and Leonard Cohen, but also serial killers Aileen Wuornos and the Grim Sleeper. His films regularly feature a healthy dose of self-reflection, and it is not uncommon for film making itself to be the theme. At DOCVILLE he presents his newest and most personal film, My Father and Me.
