Called "the greatest rock film ever made," this landmark documentary follows the Rolling Stones on their notorious 1969 U.S. tour. When 300,000 members of the Love Generation collided with a few dozen Hell's Angels at San Francisco's Altamont Speedway, direct cinema pioneers David and Albert Maysles and Charlotte Zwerin immortalized on film the bloody clash that transformed a decade's dreams into disillusionment.

Includes appearances by Ike and Tina Turner, Jefferson Airplane, and the Flying Burrito Brothers. Directed by David Maysles, Albert Maysles, Charlotte Zwerin.
