We have been honored to work with Daddy Kool Records and No Clubs to put together 2 years of monthly programming focused on music and culture documentaries. This month we are excited to partner with Oscilloscope Laboratories Virtual Cinema and bring a film that is a unique look at the life and death of Shannon Hoon of Blind Melon.
The film is available until July 10th and then we will be bringing another film for the last half of the month that is still in the works!
Bringing documentary films to you is one of our passions, but it just so happens that this month , with the purchase of a ticket for this film you can help support Daddy Kool Records as they will receive 50% of all purchases of the film!
All I CAN SAY
World Premiere: 2019 Tribeca Film Festival
Run Time: 102 Minutes
Shannon Hoon, lead singer of the rock band Blind Melon, filmed himself religiously from 1990-1995 with a video camera, recording up until a few hours before his sudden death at the age of twenty-eight. 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 90s, an era right before the internet changed the world.
Created solely with his own footage, voice, and music, this rare autobiography is a prescient exploration of experience and memory in the age of video. It is also Hoon’s last work, completed twenty-three years after his death.
