You Better Pack For This Trip
Just like with the Grateful Dead‘s music, you can’t compile their whole journey into a short and simple film which is why Amir Bar-Lev and executive producer Martin Scorsese created a documentary spanning over 4 hours to showcase the groups long and strange trip (see what I did there).
After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, Bar-Lev’s documentary of the Grateful Dead, Long Strange Trip, is set to hit theaters on May 26 in New York and Los Angeles for a limited run. Dont fret though, for those who can’t travel the video will be available exclusively through Amazon Prime on June 2nd marking the first time Amazon have partnered on an original project to be released in both theaters and on Prime.
The documentary chronicles the rise of the legendary band from their Bay Area roots to performing stadiums around the world. A soundtrack will also be released by Rhino through Amazon Music.
