Hole - Schemel's Biopic Features Cobain The Family Man

Former Hole star Patty Schemel realised she'd captured grunge gold on film when she revisited home video footage she'd shot of bandmate Courtney Love, her husband Kurt Cobain and their baby daughter Frances Bean with filmmaker David Ebersol.
The director convinced the rocker to edit the candid family moments and release it as a Dvd.
Schemel then approached Love to make sure she would support the film, titled Hit so Hard.
She says, "I was just trying to preserve all of this footage which was on Hi-8 tape. As we were doing the dubbing of all the footage from analogue to digital my friend David said it was a great story and I should do something with it.
"Some of it I'd taken during the time when I lived with them (Cobain and Love). I wanted to show my perspective and you don't see that part of Kurt very often, that sort of silly guy, the family guy. Looking over the footage brought me right back into those days.
"The first cut was, like, four hours long so quite a bit had to be edited down. It'll be on the Dvd extras."
And she was thrilled when Love gave Schemel her blessing to release the film, and agreed to be part of it: "Courtney was involved with the interview she gave for the movie and was completely on board for it. She gifted the music publishing. The movie couldn't have been made without that because the music is such a huge part."
Schemel reunited with Love and their former Hole bandmates Eric Erlandson and Melissa Auf der Maur at the launch party of the documentary in Brooklyn, New York on Friday (13Apr12).
