Wakefield Doc Fest’s Closing Gala is a very special screening of the newly remastered MONTEREY POP, the seminal rock concert film from master documentarian D.A. Pennebaker.
And after the film, stay put for a concert with Greg Stone and WKFLD PWR CMPNY!
Before Woodstock, there was Monterey Pop.
On a beautiful June weekend in 1967, in the midst of the Summer of Love, the first and only Monterey International Pop Festival captured a decade’s spirit and ushered in a new era of rock and roll. Monterey would launch the careers of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Otis Redding, but they were just a few among a wildly diverse lineup of musicians that included Simon and Garfunkel, the Mamas and the Papas, the Who, the Byrds, Hugh Masekela, and the extraordinary Ravi Shankar.
With his characteristic vérité style, renowned documentary maker D. A. Pennebaker captured it all, creating as he did this granddaddy of all rock concert films, immortalizing moments that have become legend: Pete Townshend destroying his guitar, Jimi Hendrix burning his.
And after all the on-screen fun, WKFLD PWR CMPNY will rock your socks off with covers from the show.
What a great party to end our 2018 Wakefield Doc Fest!!
