Presented in two parts! 1st half on August 28th and 2nd half on August 29th. Four and 1/2 hours long and told over two remarkable nights, Long Strange Trip, traces the remarkable, tempestuous, career of the Grateful Dead. Emerging from the Bay Area’s vibrant 1960s counterculture, the Dead were a motley crew whose unique sound sprang from an eclectic blend of influences: bluegrass, folk ballads, R&B, free-form jazz and classical, becoming one of rock and roll’s most unlikely success stories. The Dead’s quintessential character is hard to place, but that’s exactly what Director Amir Bar-Lev explores in this passionate, all-encompassing look at the creative spirit behind the “band beyond description.” Drawing from an incredible trove of stills, film footage, audio recordings, and rare live tracks (much of which has never been seen or heard) Bar-Lev’s fresh, inventive approach paints the picture of a distinctly American band exploring visions of Americana through music, becoming an examination of intense public adoration and the burdens of fame. Takes place at the Center for the Arts, 606 6th Street. (303) 204-9080. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Film starts at 7:00 p.m. $12 suggested donation. Tickets available at the door, in advance at the Center for the Arts, or online at www.cbfilmfest.org/monthly-films
