JIMI HENDRIX: ELECTRIC CHURCH

JIMI HENDRIX: ELECTRIC CHURCH presents the legendary guitarist in full flight at the 1970 Atlanta Pop Festival before the largest U.S. audience of his career — and just two months before his untimely death. This critically acclaimed film combines color, 16mm multi-camera footage of Hendrix's unforgettable July 4, 1970 concert in its original performance sequence together with a new documentary that traces his journey to the festival amidst the dark shadow of civil rights unrest, the unrelenting toll of the Vietnam War and a burgeoning festival culture that drew together young people across the country who were inspired by Woodstock. ELECTRIC CHURCH features interviews with Hendrix's Experience band mates Billy Cox and the late Mitch Mitchell, as well as Paul McCartney, Steve Winwood, Rich Robinson, Kirk Hammett, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi and many others. Despite the overwhelming attendance (estimated to be 300,000-400,000), the festival, and Hendrix's performance in particular, has not received its due in terms of historic impact until now.

Originally debuting in 2015, JIMI HENDRIX: ELECTRIC CHURCH is finally making its theatrical debut and is set to make an historic run of limited engagements at select theaters worldwide.
