Prime Rocks: Pearl Jam Twenty

9:30pm Monday, December 19 on Prime

Documentary

Told in big themes and bold colours with blistering sound, Pearl Jam Twenty is the definitive portrait of Pearl Jam: part concert film, part intimate insider-hang, part testimonial to the power of music and uncompromising artists. Carved from more than 1,200 hours of rare and previously unseen footage, live performances and recent interviews, the film chronicles the years leading up to Pearl Jam’s formation, their rise to fame, and the chaos that ensued soon thereafter.

Academy Award winning director Cameron Crowe has assembled the best-of-the-best from Pearl Jam’s past and present in a compelling narrative that recreates the visceral feeling of what it is to love music and feel it deeply. After twenty years, nine best-selling albums, 60 million record sales worldwide and thousands of live performances across the globe, Pearl Jam has a devoted fan base often compared to music legends like The Grateful Dead, Bruce Springsteen and The Who, propelling them into superstardom and solidifying their position as one of the biggest, most magnetic touring acts in the world.
