The rock doc is told in big themes and bold colors with blistering sound, and chronicles the years leading up to the band's formation, the chaos that ensued soon-after being catapulted into superstardom, their step back from the spotlight with the instinct of self-preservation, and the creation of a trusted circle that would surround them—giving way to a work culture that would sustain them. The film celebrates the freedom that allows the band to make music without losing themselves, their fans, or the music lovers they'd always been.
"We put so much into the film – moments, pieces of footage shot by band members, audio snippets, visual bursts, new and old interviews – many different formats, all meant to present an emotional scrapbook of what it felt like to be a member of the band on this twenty-year journey," said Director Cameron Crowe. "The richness of the footage made our path very clear – just tell the story of the band and let the music guide us. It was a joy to make this film, and we're thrilled to share it with the fans."
The captivating documentary gives fans and audiences an intimate first glimpse into Pearl Jam's journey culled from more than 1,200 hours of rarely and never-before-seen footage, over 24 hours of recent interviews with the band, as well as live footage of their spellbinding concert performances. PJ20, will be available on Single Disc DVD with 30-minutes of never-before-seen bonus features.
