Legendary ’60s documentarian D.A. Pennebaker (Don’t Look Back), with a team that included innovator Richard Leacock and one half of the Maysles, Albert (who with his brother, David, made Salesmen, Grey Gardens, and Gimme Shelter), captured 1967’s Monterey Pop Festival with their cinéma vérité lens in what’s proven to be a Summer of Love-defining concert film. The festival launched the careers of Otis Redding, Ravi Shankar and Janis Joplin, performing with Big Brother and the Holding Company; produced iconic images like Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar; and offered a Who’s Who of ‘60s musicians including everyone above, Jefferson Airplane, the Mamas and the Papas, and The Who.
