(NR) USA – 1 hr 31 min
1970 · d. Albert Maysles, David Maysles, Charlotte Zwerin
Starring Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Mick Taylor, Bill Wyman
Docu-royalty Albert and David Maysles capture the scene as the Rolling Stones’s 1969 concert at the Bay Area’s Altamont Speedway is enveloped by booze, drugs, bad vibes, and violence, sounding a death knell for the love-generation dream. Hailed by Indiewire as “the best rock film ever made”, Gimme Shelter remains an electrifying record of an era’s end.
Gimme Shelter will be introduced by its instructor, Andrew Owen, Ph.D.
