VIDEO: Q&A with Ozzy and Jack at God Bless Ozzy Osbourne premiere

God Bless Ozzy Osbourne, a new documentary about - guess who - debuted Sunday at New York’s 10th Annual Tribeca Film Festival.

The Osbourne clan was out in full force: Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly.

Directed by Mike Fleiss and Mike Piscitelli and co-produced by Jack Osbourne, the film marks the first release by Jack's production company, Jacko Productions.

At the premiere screening, Ozzy, Jack, Fleiss and Piscitelli took part in a question-and-answer session, which was also attended by Robert De Niro and Marky Ramone.

Ozzy’s lengthy career, full of headline-making events, and breaking through his father’s guarded public image were challenges for the producers to address, right from the start.

“I think the hardest part,” said Jack, “was…two things: at the beginning, was getting Dad to really open up and drop ‘Ozzy’ and become ‘John’; and also, figuring out how the hell to we were going to tell 62 years in 90 minutes. There’s so much stuff we had to leave out ‘cause the movie would have been 5 hours long.”
