Free Screening & Discussion

(1970) dir Albert Maysles, David Maysles w/The Rolling Stones [91 min; 35mm]
In October, the focus for Elements of Cinema moves to the documentary form and we felt that this stunning rock doc from the Maysles Brothers would be a great place to start. As notable for what it isn’t as for what it is, GIMME SHELTER puts the filmmaking process on screen as we see what happens when an unexpected historic moment is captured on film destined for an otherwise innocent concert movie.

Elements of Cinema logoWe’re thrilled to resurrect ELEMENTS OF CINEMA, our monthly free screening and discussion series, thanks in part to a grant from the NEA!

This special free screening will be followed by a discussion led by the Brattle staff.
