Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church

Electric Church presents the legendary guitarist in full flight at the 1970 Atlanta Pop Festival before the largest U.S. audience of his career.

This critically acclaimed film combines 16mm multi-camera color footage of Hendrix’ 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 relenting toll of the Vietnam War and a burgeoning festival culture that drew together young people across the country who were inspired by the Woodstock festival.

"has the added poignance of being his last major show before his death just 10 weeks later."

David Hinckley, New York Daily News

"Provides further evidence, not that any was necessary, of the legendary performer's magnetism and musical virtuosity."

Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
