Cure for Pain: The Mark Sandman Story

Sneak Peek / Movie Trailer
Mark Sandman & Morphine


Cure for Pain: The Mark Sandman Story 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, SANDMAN explores the meaning of family through this critically praised and personally conflicted singer, songwriter and innovative instrumentalist.


The pursuit of Sandman’s turbulent story has led filmmakers Robert G. Bralver, Jeff Broadway and David Ferino to New York, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London and Rome. Among those appearing in the film are members of the Sandman family, Seth Mnookin (Vanity Fair), Nic Harcourt (Los Angeles Times, KCRW), Steve LaBate (Paste), Ben Harper, John Medeski, Les Claypool (Primus), Mike Watt (The Stooges), Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) and members of Morphine: Dana Colley, Billy Conway and Jerome Deupree.

The film is currently in post-production.
Cure for Pain will be entering festivals worldwide in 2011.

Yes me too. I like Morphine, i like their sound... But the trailer is not very good, like a DVD Bonus filled with Very Important Musicians who are telling how much Mark was extremly gifted and Unique, a sort of hagiography, a chatterbox. Hope it's a real documentary with MUSIC and not another celebration of pathos
