Korn co-founder Brian “Head” Welch’s documentary “Loud Krazy Love” was extremely well received at it’s first screening at the Dallas International Film Festival on Saturday, according to a faith-based public relations agency.
The agency’s president, A. Larry Ross, who attended the film’s Texas premier, said “Loud Krazy Love” received “the only standing ovation of the festival so far.” The 7-day film festival (May 3-10) ends Thursday.
“It’s been fun working with this guy (Brian Head Welch of Korn) and helping tell the world about the premieres of LOUD KRAZY LOVE at the Dallas International Film Festival and the Nashville Film Festival. This is only the beginning for this amazing film, which will release in the fall. You need to see his story – it’s beautiful, surprising and inspiring!” VP Kristin Cole, of A. Larry Ross Communications posted on her Facebook page.
The film is an unconventional documentary chronicling the chaotic and unexpectedly uplifting life story of Welch, best known as guitarist and co-founder of KoRn, said producers on the film’s website.
After its Texas premier, the 86-minute film directed by first-time feature filmmakers Trey Hill and Scott Mayo will make its Southeast premier during the Nashville Film Festival May 10-19, with multiple screenings.
Producers said that the film features exclusive access on tour and at home, as well as in-depth interviews with Brian, his family and his Korn bandmates. “Loud Krazy Love subverts the standard sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll narrative to explore Brian’s identity as a father and the complicated relationship he shares with his daughter Jennea. The film takes viewers through a tumultuous coming-of-age journey filled with chaos, doubt, and unconventional faith.”
“In my life I’ve done so many things I regret and wish that I could change,” said Welch. “It can feel haunting. But seeing my entire life with Korn and my family play out before my eyes in this film, and seeing the positive that has come from my most embarrassing and devastating failures – there are no words to express my gratitude. Our team created a very special film here, and I can’t wait for the world to see it.”
Production of the film covered four years and includes two decades worth of never-before-seen material from Welch, his family and KoRn. The result is a remarkable cinematic experience of amplified emotion, rock ‘n’ roll access and restorative love, producers said.
“Loud Krazy Love” is directed by Hill and Mayo, who also wrote and edited the film. It is produced by Samuel Ditore of Ditore Mayo Entertainment and John Humphrey of I Am Second Media.
