Shannon Hoon, lead singer of the rock band Blind Melon, filmed himself from 1990-95 with a Hi8 video camera, recording up until a few hours before his sudden death at the age of 28. His camera was a diary and his closest confidant. In the hundreds of hours of footage, Hoon meticulously documented his life – his family, his creative process, his television, his band’s rise to fame and his struggle with addiction. He filmed his daughter’s birth, and archived the politics and culture of the 90’s, an era right before the internet changed the world. Created with his own footage, voice and music, this intimate autobiography is a prescient exploration of experience and memory in the age of video. It is also Shannon Hoon’s last work, completed 23 years after his death.
Dir: Danny Clinch, Taryn Gould, Colleen Hennessy and Shannon Hoon / 2020 / US / 102 min
“This film is a unique experience. I would recommend any fan of Blind Melon to check this out, but even if you aren’t – do it anyway. This is a movie that deserves to be seen, heard, and experienced.” — Kristy Strouse, Film Inquiry
“It’s guaranteed to become a must-see for fans of the band, or anyone interested in ’90s music, and would make a fine addition to any boxed set of the group’s work.” — Stephen Whitty, Screen International
