Borderlines Film Festival

Monterey Pop (12a)

Over a beautiful June weekend in 1967, the Monterey Pop Festival brought together the music of ‘the summer of love’: The Mamas and the Papas, Canned Heat, Jefferson Airplane, Big Brother and the Holding Company, The Animals, and The Who, to name a few. The first true rockumentary (arguably, the best), filmed in verité style by D. A. Pennebaker and his team, it caught the spirit of the decade. With hair-chilling performance from Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, who sets fire to his guitar on stage, the climax of the film is the 17-minute closing sequence that travels gently across the mesmerised audience for Ravi Shankar and Alla Rakh’s extraordinary set. Unavailable for years, this is a restored version that has so far screened only a handful of times in Europe.
