Altamont 360° the documentary AlBERT MAYSLES SAID: "NEEDS TO BE MADE"


Altamont 360° is a full-length documentary film about the Altamont Festival of 1969.  Produced by Susan Doran.
(In pre-production.)

The gist:

You want to know the one truth that explains the Altamont Free Concert of 1969!

Who was to blame? Who are the villains? 

What if there's not one truth--or one true narrative? 

What if the reality of Altamont (and other historical events) depends on your angle, and "the true story" is multifaceted, and gorgeously complex?


High-concept 360° storytelling

Inspired by Rashomon, the brilliant film by Kurosawa, in which multiple characters provide highly varying, subjective, often contradictory narratives of the same violent incident.

Altamont 360º is a high-concept revolutionary documentary film exploring the Altamont Free Concert of 1969, using a 360-degree Rashomon-style device that gives voice and validity to all perspectives and all angles of the compelling collection of stories that is Altamont.
