Monterey Pop is a 1968 concert film by D.A. Pennebaker that documents the Monterey Pop Festival of 1967. Among Pennebaker’s several camera operators were fellow documentarians Richard Leacock and Albert Maysles. The painter Brice Marden has an "assistant camera" credit, and Bob Neuwirth, who figured prominently in Pennebaker’s Bob Dylan documentary Dont Look Back, acted as stage manager. Titles for the film were by the illustrator Tomi Ungerer. Featured performers include Big Brother and the Holding Company with Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Hugh Masekela, Otis Redding, Ravi Shankar, The Mamas & The Papas, The Who (who destroy their instruments at the end of "My Generation"), and Jimi Hendrix, who set his guitar on fire during "Wild Thing.

[edit] Influence

Jean-Luc Godard, the French New Wave director, was so taken by Jefferson Airplane’s performance in Monterey Pop that later in 1968 he set out to make a never-finished film called One A.M.
(for "One American Movie") in collaboration with Pennebaker and
Leacock. Godard shot a sequence of the Airplane, (included on the 2004
"Fly Jefferson Airplane" DVD) , playing at high noon on a business day
on the roof of a New York hotel across the street from the
Leacock-Pennebaker offices, with the tower of Rockefeller Center
in the background. Attracted by the extremely high volume of the music,
the police arrived and put an end to the shooting. This incident
inspired other bands, notably the Beatles in their Let It Be film, to mount their own rooftop performances.
