“Quite simply one of the best rock concert films ever thanks not only to some great performances but also to the way it sums up the spirit of the times” (Time Out)
It was 1967, the Summer of Love. On a beautiful June weekend 50 years ago, the Monterey International Pop Festival ushered in a new era of rock and roll. Launching the careers of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, the festival also hosted a wildly diverse list of other performers from Simon and Garfunkel, Otis Redding, the Mamas and the Papas, and the Who to the Byrds, Hugh Masekela, and Ravi Shankar. And with his characteristic vérité style, now-legendary documentarian D. A. Pennebaker captured it all. Relive the memories or experience this seminal event for the first time with this restored 4K high-definition digital transfer – and a party!
