Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
Dir: Murray Lerner
Director Murray Lerner Oscar-nominated documentary chronicles all the major artists at the Newport Folk Festival from 1962 to 1966. Includes Dylan, Joan Baez, Donovan, Judy Collins, Johnny Cash, plus blues legends Mississippi John Hurt, Son House, Howlin' Wolf, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee and many more!
The 1970 Isle of Wight Festival was the largest rock event of the era, with more than 600,000 attendees, featuring the last major performances by Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison. Oscar winning director Murray Lerner (FROM MAO TO MOZART: ISAAC STERN IN CHINA) beautifully captured the performances by the cream of the rock royalty crop - and also discreetly documented the greed of promoters and festival attendees that helped kill off the 1960s hippie dream. Includes The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Jethro Tull, ELP, Free, Ten Years After, The Moody Blues, John Sebastian, Donovan, Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen. Plus previously unseen outtakes!
