Jim Morrison Documentary in the Works

Jim Morrison Documentary DetailsThe Jim Morrison documentary, Before the End: Jim Morrison Comes of Age, has begun production according to Z-Machine (the production company run by Jeff and Jess Finn). According to the official announcement of the Morrison film, this indie documentary “follows the trajectory of Jim Morrison’s development, prior to his rock superstardom.” The documentary hopes to provide audiences with a clear look at who James Douglas Morrison was “as opposed to Jim Morrison, rock god.”
 
Before the End will include interviews with friends and family members along with previously unreleased home movies and photos from his earlier years.
 
The Plot Details:
 
Known [in]famously as the lead singer of The Doors, Morrison accomplished much in his brief life beyond music, including three self-published books of poetry and an experimental film. He received numerous accolades on his way to achieving fabled status, but over the last four decades, persistent rumors and myths have distorted the truth. When Morrison passed on in July 1971, he left a controversial legacy riddled with unanswered questions and misinterpretations. Before the End: Jim Morrison Comes of Age will shed new light on the artist’s early life, and his mysterious death at age 27.
 
Before the End: Jim Morrison Comes of Age documents Morrison via those who experienced him as a person, not just a persona, including Jim’s brother Andy Morrison, Florida State University roommate Bryan Gates, Morrison’s UCLA film instructor Bill Adams, and Doors roadie Gareth Blyth, among many others. In addition, hours of off-the-record conversations with Jim’s sister, Anne Morrison-Chewning, his first serious girlfriends, Tandy Martin and Mary Werbelow, and good friend Alain Ronay helped put puzzle pieces in place.
