VIDEO: Jack Osbourne discusses ‘God Bless Ozzy Osbourne’ film

Rock documentaries are all in fashion these days: you’ve got your Rush, your Lemmy, your Foo Fighters and, now, your Ozzy Osbourne.

“God Bless Ozzy Osbourne” – a new documentary about Ozzy’s life and times, debuts this week at the 10th Annual Tribeca Film Festival in New York. There are a few screenings on the festival’s calendar:

* Sunday, April 24 at 6:00 p.m. - BMCC Tribeca PAC
* Thursday, Apr 28 at 9:30 p.m. - SVA Theater 1 Silas
* Saturday, Apr 30 at 1:00 p.m. - AMC Loews Village 7 - 2

Directed by Mike Piscitelli and written and produced by Jordan Tappis, it is the first release from Jack Osbourne’s company, Jacko Productions.

The project – originally entitled “Wreckage Of My Past: The Ozzy Osbourne Story” - is billed as “an intimate documentary that delves deep into the life of music icon Ozzy Osbourne. A sober Ozzy has reached a point of clarity as he looks back on a lifetime of unparalleled success, misdiagnosed disease, unrelenting fear and a recurring dependency on drugs and alcohol. This is a film about reconciling the past and looking toward the future.”

“God Bless Ozzy Osbourne” is expected in theatres later this year.

The younger Osbourne stopped by the "Good Day New York” studios this past Thursday morning (April 21) to talk about the film.
