Monterey Pop

This weekend the Webster University Film Series presents Monterey Pop, June 29, 30, July 1 and 2 at 7:30 p.m. in the Winifred Moore Auditorium.

Monterey Pop (D.A. Pennebaker, 1968, USA, 78 min.)

On a beautiful June weekend in 1967, at the height of the Summer of Love, the first and only Monterey International Pop Festival roared forward, capturing a decade’s spirit and ushering in a new era of rock and roll.

Monterey would launch the careers of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Otis Redding, but they were just a few among a wildly diverse cast including Simon and Garfunkel, the Mamas and the Papas, the Who, Hugh Masekela, and the extraordinary Ravi Shankar. The stunning film features one extraordinary performance after another captured by legendary documentarian D.A. Pennebaker.
