Cameron Crowe’s documentary chronicling twenty years of Pearl Jam premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival on 9/10. The film, which was compiled from over 1,200 hours of footage, promises “the definitive portrait of Pearl Jam: part concert film, part intimate insider-hang, part testimonial to the power of music and uncompromising artists.” Preview some David Lynch/Eddie Vedder Q&A and reminisce about Jeff Ament’s funky hats in the trailer below.

The movie opens in major cities 9/20 and will air on PBS as part of American Masters on 10/21. Prior to that Pearl Jam will celebrate with its own festival 9/3 & 9/4 at Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, WI. A film companion book (featuring interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, and Dave Grohl) and soundtrack are available for pre-order now at pj20.com.
