Abstract

The award-winning music "rockumentary" Hype (1996) presents a dramatic story about a community of people, passionate about "grunge" rock music, residing in Seattle on the northwest coast of the United States. Directed by Doug Pray and produced by Steve Helvey, graduates from UCLA, and filmed over a period of five years, the film "explains what happened in Seattle between 1987 and 1991-the year Nirvana set rock 'n' roll on a new course and brought legions of talent scouts to the city in search of the next big thing." At eighty-seven minutes in length, Hype explores how Seattle's music culture emerged in the first half of the 1990s as a significant influence in Western popular culture.
