Seattle Office of Film + Music


EMP SCREENS ICONIC GRUNGE DOCUMENTARY NEXT WEEK

EMP
Hype! came out in 1996 soon after the, um, hype surrounding grunge music pushed the genre into the mainstream and simultaneously thrust Seattle into the national spotlight. Director Doug Pray masterfully captured the history and development of the movement and how the subsequent media exposure eventually led to public backlash. Documented are key interviews and performances by bands that put grunge on the map, including Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Tad, Fastbacks, and many more. An excellent companion piece to the EMP’s current exhibit, Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses, the museum will screen Hype! next week with Pray in attendance to participate in a post-screening Q & A.
