In 2001, on Wednesday the 11th of July, the Rock ‘n Roll musician and painter Herman Brood jumps off the roof of the Hilton hotel. The way he ends his life is just as extravagant as the way he lived his life. Herman left a trail in his videos, songs and interviews which gives an answer to the questions raised from his death. Unknown Brood delves into the past to relive the important moments with its never-before-seen footage and the people that were closest to Brood. Brood’s life was from the beginning until the end a struggle between being a human or becoming a myth. Those two paths met on 11 July.
