diciembre 23, 2009

Monterey Pop is a 1968 concert film by D. A. Pennebaker that documents the Monterey Pop Festival of 1967. Among Pennebaker’s several camera operators were fellow documentarians Richard Leacock and Albert Maysles. The painter Brice Marden has an “assistant camera” credit, and Bob Neuwirth, who figured prominently in Pennebaker’s Bob Dylan documentary Dont Look Back, acted as stage manager. Titles for the film were by the illustrator Tomi Ungerer. Featured performers include Big Brother and the Holding Company with Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Hugh Masekela, Otis Redding, Ravi Shankar, The Mamas & the Papas, The Who (who destroy their instruments at the end of “My Generation”), and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, whose name-sake set his guitar on fire during “Wild Thing”.

mayo 22, 2009

Woodstock is a 1970 documentary on the Woodstock Festival that took place in August 1969 at Bethel in New York. The film was directed by Michael Wadleigh and was edited by (amongst others) Martin Scorsese and Thelma Schoonmaker; Schoonmaker was nominated for an Academy Award for Film Editing. It received the Academy Award for Documentary Feature, as well as a nomination for Best Sound. The film was also screened at the 1970 Cannes Film Festival, but wasn’t entered into the main competition. The Official Director’s Cut, spanning 225 minutes, was released in 1994. There is also a solo DVD release of Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock. VH1 Classic occasionally airs the Director’s Cut version of the documentary. In 1996, Woodstock was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.
