50th Anniversary Release! New Restoration!
Fifty years ago in Monterey, CA, the first Monterey International Pop Festival was born (and continues to this day). It ushered in the Summer of Love and captured the decade’s spirit – before Woodstock. With his legendary cinema vérité style, D. A. Pennebaker (“Bob Dylan: Don’t Look Back”) caught the outdoor music festival on film, immortalizing magic moments in rock history. This restored re-release features career-making performances by Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Hugh Masekela, Ravi Shankar, Otis Redding, Simon and Garfunkel, the Mamas and the Papas, the Who, and the Byrds.
