Cure for Pain: The Mark Sandman Story
2011. N/R. 85 minutes. Documentary. Directors: Robert Bralver and David Ferino. Producer: Jeff Broadway.
Cure for Pain: The Mark Sandman Story examines the life and work of Mark Sandman, deceased frontman of Boston band Morphine. From his Newton, MA, roots to his travels across America and around the globe, Sandman left an indelible imprint as one of the most distinctive musicians of his generation. Along with revisiting the “unique and sultry sound” of his music, the film explores the meaning of family through this critically praised and personally conflicted singer, songwriter, and innovative instrumentalist.
The pursuit of Sandman’s turbulent story led filmmakers Robert Bralver, David Ferino, and Jeff Broadway to New York, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London and Rome. Among those appearing in the film are members of the Sandman family, Nic Harcourt (Los Angeles Times, KCRW), Seth Mnookin (Vanity Fair), Ben Harper, John Medeski, Les Claypool (Primus), Dicky Barrett (The Mighty Mighty Bosstones), Mike Watt (Minutemen, The Stooges), Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), and members of Morphine: Dana Colley, Billy Conway, and Jerome Deupree.
Cure for Pain is premiering in Chicago at The Whistler on July 30th at 6:00pm. Free admission. 21+. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with producer Jeff Broadway.
