A feature-length documentary about the Foo Fighters -- chronicling their 16-year career -- will premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas this March, followed shortly thereafter by its theatrical release. Directed by Academy Award winner James Moll, the documentary takes viewers back to a time when Grohl was in Nirvana and the Foo Fighters merely a speck of an idea, and it culminates with an in-depth examination of the band's extraordinary circumstances recording their current album.
"In October of 1994, I walked into Robert Lang's Seattle studio with a guitar, a drum set, a bass and 14 songs I thought nobody would ever hear," says Grohl in a statement issued to the press. "Five days later, I walked out with the first Foo Fighters record. Sixteen years and seven studio albums later, with the help of Academy Award winning director James Moll, we're finally able to tell the story of how that one demo cassette turned into the band that we are today. This is our side of the story. From the first rehearsal, to the completion of our new album, it's all there."
