Edition 1996
84' - 1996 - Documentary - Dialogue: English
Director: Doug Pray
A feature-length rockumentary film about the origins of the Seattle music scene featuring Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and the other trail blazing bands and personalities who paved the way. Filled with concert footage and irreverent social commentary by headline performers, "Hype!" captures the culture, spirit and style of what is today's most widely marketed music phenomenon -- grunge! Humorously revealing the ironies of success associated with the evolution of some of Seattle's local bands into today's top international artists, "Hype!" tells the story, plays the music and delivers the attitude of a subculture that has become an international sensation.
