Martin Scorsese’s Grateful Dead Documentary To Preview At Film Fest

first_imgOne of the major stories to break in the 50th anniversary saga of the Grateful Dead last year was a major documentary project, produced by the famed Martin Scorsese. Scorsese’s long history in documenting legendary musicians made this particular film quite appealing, though little has been said about it since the initial buzz.That’s all changing, however, as the Asbury Park Music In Film Festival will host the first preview of the film, along with a panel discussion about its creation. Directed by Eric Eisner, the documentary is said to cover everything from the very beginnings all the way until last year’s “Fare Thee Well” celebration, but little else is known.The preview will screen at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, on April 9th at 2:30 PM. Further events include screenings of Grateful Dawg, chronicling Jerry Garcia and David Grisman’s relationship, American Epic, starring Jack White, T-Bone Burnett and more, and the new Miles Ahead biopic about Miles Davis.
