Bon Jovi's documentary, "Bon Jovi: When We Were Beautiful", which is described as a work-in-progress documentary will be the main focus of the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival (Apr. 22 - May. 3).
The movie will screen as the fest's centerpiece presentation on April 29, with another pair of screenings scheduled over the following three days. The documentary celebrates 25 years of the band's impressive career. Besides the music, it also focuses on the relationships between all band members of the past decade. This will be featured in interviews.
Director Griffin has more scoop: “Throughout the process of working with Bon Jovi, I was amazed at the candor and humility Jon and his band showed me. The result is not a neatly wrapped up bundle of staged interviews and musical interludes, but rather a series of open and sometimes difficult conversations, explored against a backdrop of music spanning 25 years. It is a film about the peace of Tico, the complexity of Richie, the drive of Jon and the brutal honesty of Dave. It is their willingness to share their stories that gives us what I hope is a very human story—that humanity is what I believe has seen this band stand the test of time.” (Tribecafilm.com)
