Pearl Jam Twenty: A chronicle of the formation of Pearl Jam, the chaos resulting from their mega stardom, their retreat from center stage, and the changes they made to create a work culture that would sustain them as a band. Told in big themes and bold colors with blistering sound, the film is carved from over 1,200 hours of rarely-seen and never-before seen footage spanning the band’s career. Pearl Jam Twenty is the definitive portrait of Pearl Jam: part concert film, part intimate insider-hang, part testimonial to the power of music and uncompromising artists.

Pearl Jam Twenty premieres Friday, October 21st on PBS as part of the first PBS Arts Fall Festival. In Gainesville, you can catch it Friday, October 21st at 9:00 PM and Saturday, October 22 at 2:00 AM on Florida’s 5, WUFT. Check local listings for your area.
