On the occasion of the publication of his new book, Just a Shot Away: Peace, Love, and Tragedy with the Rolling Stones at Altamont (Thomas Dunne Books), writer and critic Saul Austerlitz joined the Film Society to present a double bill of two key cinematic documents of Altamont and its legacy: Albert & David Maysles and Charlotte Zwerin’s Gimme Shelter (1970) and Sam Green’s Lot 63, Grave C (2006), followed by a panel moderated by Austerlitz with Gimme Shelter cinematographer Joan Churchill, producer Porter Bibb, editor Mirra Bank, and Judy Maysles.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center is devoted to supporting the art and elevating the craft of cinema. The only branch of the world-renowned arts complex Lincoln Center to shine a light on the everlasting yet evolving importance of the moving image, this nonprofit organization was founded in 1969 to celebrate American and international film. Via year-round programming and discussions; its annual New York Film Festival; and its publications, including Film Comment, the U.S.’s premier magazine about films and film culture, the Film Society endeavors to make the discussion and appreciation of cinema accessible to a broader audience, as well as to ensure that it will remain an essential art form for years to come.
