Cure for Pain examines the life and work of Mark Sandman, deceased frontman of Boston “low rock” band Morphine. From his Newton, Mass., roots to his travels across America and around the globe, Sandman left an indelible imprint as one of the most distinctive musicians of his generation. Along with revisiting the “unique and sultry sound” of his music, the film explores the meaning of family through this critically praised and personally conflicted singer, songwriter and instrumentalist. The pursuit of Sandman’s story has led filmmakers to New York, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London and Rome. Among those appearing in the film are members of the Sandman family, Ben Harper, John Medeski (Medeski Martin & Wood), Les Claypool (Primus), Mike Watt (The Stooges), Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) and members of Morphine.
