Shannon Hoon, singer of Blind Melon, filmed his life from 1990-95 with a Hi8 video camera, recording up until hours before his death at age 28.
Created 23 years later, this is an intimate autobiography is Hoon’s last work. 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.
