Award-winning documentary “Loud Krazy Love” is being made available for public viewing through three unique opportunities — select theatrical advance screenings happening now, a Father’s Day Weekend Watch Party Event and the digital and DVD release on June 18. The trailer can be seen below.
Produced by I Am Second Media and Ditore Mayo Entertainment, “Loud Krazy Love” documents the remarkable and touching true story of two-time Grammy-winning artist Brian “Head” Welch and his daughter Jennea.
Billboard described “Loud Krazy Love” as “part rock doc, part faith testimonial, part family drama.” It’s a fearless coming-of-age story that grapples with faith, teen depression, the quest for identity and the hope of a father willing to do anything for the one he loves. The film explores the relationship between the Welches and how Jennea saved Brian‘s life, as he walked away from a $23 million record deal and overcame a crippling addiction to drugs to focus on becoming a good father.
It won “Best Feature Doc Audience Award” at the Dallas International Film Festival (beating out 35 other documentaries), was a Grand Jury nominee at the Nashville Film Festival and received critical acclaim from audiences following its premiere on Showtime.
“When I watch ‘Loud Krazy Love’, I’m amazed at where Jennea and I have been compared to where we are now,” said Brian. “Our relationship was broken and strained before I made a conscious choice to change my habits and my life. Today, our relationship is stronger than ever. If all the pain and heartache we went through can help others, then it was all worth it.”
“This film has resonated with so many different people because while Brian and Jennea have unconventional life circumstances as a rock ‘n’ roll family, the issues they faced are those with which all can relate,” said John Humphrey, vice-president of I Am Second and producer of “Loud Krazy Love”.
In addition to chronicling Brian and Jennea‘s journey, “Loud Krazy Love” also gives exclusive access of Brian on tour and at home, in-depth interviews with him, his family and his bandmates, and two decades worth of never-before-seen material from Brian and his multi-platinum-selling band KORN.
“Loud Krazy Love” is directed by first-time feature filmmakers Scott Mayo and Trey Hill and produced by Humphrey and Samuel Ditore of Ditore Mayo Entertainment.
“When we set out to make this film, it was with a desire to humanize and normalize what a real faith might actually look like,” said Mayo. “Real life is messy and tumultuous and this film portrays that.”
“Brian and Jennea‘s story is proof that there is hope for anyone,” said Hill. “You don’t have to hide from the shameful stuff in your life and you don’t have to let it control you, either. You can overcome and experience true freedom.”
