Directed by Martin Scorsese | 1978

Following his smash hit curated screening of Stop Making Sense at last year’s RadioLoveFest, Brian Lehrer returns to BAM to present another favorite iconic concert film. Set on Thanksgiving Day, 1976, at San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom, this documentary captures rock legends the Band as they say goodbye with a farewell performance for the ages, featuring a who’s who of rock star royalty, including Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond, Joni Mitchell, Ringo Starr, The Staples Singers, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, and more. Shot by cinematographers extraordinaire Laszlo Kovacs and Vilmos Zsigmond, this beloved elegy for the classic rock era is the ultimate concert film.
