Description

The greatest and scariest rock film ever made, Gimme Shelter follows the Rolling Stones on their ill-fated 1969 tour.

When three hundred thousand members of the Love Generation collided with a few dozen Hells Angels at the Altamont Speedway outside of San Francisco, the filmmakers were there to immortalize the chaos that transformed a decade’s dreams into disillusionment (1970, 91 min, digital).

Preceded by Kenneth Anger’s satanic, shot-in-SF short Invocation of My Demon Brother, with soundtrack by Mick Jagger (1969, 11 min, 16mm)
