Gimme Shelter

A 35mm print of the seminal Rolling Stones documentary Gimme Shelter.

Gimme Shelter (1970) Directed by Albert and David Maysles, chronicling the last weeks of The Rolling Stones’ 1969 US tour which culminated in the disastrous Altamont Free Concert. In December of 1969, four months after Woodstock, the Stones gave a free concert in Northern California, at Altamont Speedway. 300,000 people came, and the organizers put Hell’s Angels in charge of security around the stage. As the concert raged on, the intensity of the drugged out audience grew, and the Hell’s Angels (armed with pool cues and knifes), turned to brutality against the crowd.
