Bob and the Monster

Bob and the Monster,
Dir: Kierda Bahruth. 85 minutes, USA, 2011
Sun. Nov. 27 at 3pm
Six years in the making, this documentary film by Kierda Bahruth follows outspoken indie-rock hero Bob Forrest, through his life-threatening struggle with addiction, to his transformation into one of the most influential and controversial drug counsellors in the US today. Bob and the Monster crafts contemporary footage, animation and compelling interviews with archival performances and personal videos from Bob’s past to reveal the complex layers of this troubled, but hopeful soul. Testimony from his peers, including Courtney Love, Anthony Kiedis and Flea add texture, but it’s the depth of Bob’s music, interwoven throughout the film, that illuminates this unforgettable and inspirational story.
