Monterey Pop

Direct From Il Cinema Ritrovato

Cinema Rediscovered 2017

We’re delighted to continue our partnership with the pioneering Il Cinema Ritrovato, the inspiration for Cinema Rediscovered with a trio of highlights direct from this year’s festival.

Festival Director Gian Luca Farinelli introduces In Search of Colour, a programme of striking shorts including some brand new restorations from Cineteca Di Bologna’s L'Immagine Ritrovata labs with a live accompaniment from pianist Stephen Horne. There’s also a special preview of Bill Morrison’s Dawson City Frozen Time uncovering the amazing history of an unwitting repository for hundreds of reels of once lost nitrate film and a 40th anniversary showing of D.A.Pennebaker’s Monterey Pop.

As much as Woodstock is synonymous with the 60s and the summer of love, it was actually the Monterey International Pop festival which captured the mood of the era and helped transform the careers of the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Who and Janis Joplin.
