Rock legend Jimi Hendrix captivated the world with his unique, highly stylized, jaw-dropping approach to blues guitar, and this documentary chronicles his performance before the largest U.S. audience of his career. The setting was the massive Atlanta Pop Music Festival which the Jimi Hendrix Experience headlined in July 1970. The film includes never-before-seen concert footage of the icon in action, multiple standout performances and recently unearthed footage shot by Steve Rash (The Buddy Holly Story) that all detail the historic night and the efforts of promoter Alex Cooley to create the definitive music festival with Jimi Hendrix as its centerpiece.
Prior to the screening, Janie Hendrix, Jimi Hendrix's sister and CEO of Experience Hendrix LLC, will address the audience. A panel discussion hosted by veteran music publicist Bob Merlis will follow the screening featuring director John McDermott, filmmaker Steve Rash (who shot the performance footage at the Atlanta Pop Festival), and engineer Eddie Kramer, who worked with Jimi Hendrix from the beginning and co-produced/mixed the soundtrack album.
